About this book No matter what season of the year it is, observing the trees around you will always be an extraordinary occasion. The change of season from fall to winter is wonderful, from the fall colours to the feel of winter's rough bark and the promise of spring returning again. Journey through the seasons and discover how much there is to love about trees! Chris Butterworth’s text, gently sprinkled with facts, captures the wonder of a child as Charlotte Voake’s busy, buoyant artwork conveys how something as simple and common as a tree can feel like magic taking root around you.
Reviews from Around the World
"Large two-page spreads with simple, yet exquisite illustrations, done in watercolour and ink, celebrate trees through the seasons. “It’s spring! And the thing about trees that I love in the spring is that changes begin. There are buds, like beads, getting bigger on the branches….” In smaller type at the bottom of the page, true things about trees are revealed, “Trees are plants (big ones!) and spring is the time when most plants put out new leaves.” Small children are enjoying the changes in the trees throughout the seasons. Appended at the end are illustrated suggestions that one can do with trees. The inside front and back covers illustrate the leaves of various trees." -Kreviwer, Amazon
"I’ve mentioned this on Instagram before, but one of my local indie bookshops is just down the street from the place I get my hair done. I stop by to browse their picture books nearly every time I walk by, and thus I buy their latest selection, because I have several little ones in my life and no self-control in bookstores. I picked up Chris Butterworth and Charlotte Voake’s The Things That I Love About Trees the last time I was there, and I really adore it." - Cecelia Larsen, Amazon
