The colorful mixed-media illustrations are a charming, collagelike blend of textures, simplistic shapes, and intricate patterns, and a ubiquitous small bird lends a playful touch...this eloquent, affectionate portrayal will invite awareness and appreciation of ways trees enhance and impact life.
Trees is more than another pretty book, though—in simple language, it provides real, if poetically minimal, information...Simply lovely.
