Book of the week, November 13, 2016

We have been learning about trees for a few months now. We started off with a field trip to our state park for a tree identification meetup. Then we checked out several tree books, like the Audubon tree guide, of course. But I also like to have several living books that are child friendly on whatever topic we are learning about. 


This week we borrowed Crinkleroot's Guide to Knowing the Trees by Jim Arnosky. I adore Crinkleroot books, and so do the girls. 


They have such cute illustrations and bring the information in a gentle, fun way. After we read this book, the girls promptly ran outside to check out what kind of trees we have, and to collect fallen pinecones. 

We are fortunate enough to have this book at our library, but if we didn't, it would definitely be on our buy list.
