    A celebratory ode to one of nature’s wonders: trees!

    Be Thankful for Trees

    Using lilting, rhyming couplets, this book explores the many items that are made from trees. But it doesn’t stop there! Learn about the many uses of live trees – and the environmental danger to trees posed by forest fires, floods, and deforestation. You will be encouraged to be kind, not only to one another, but to the environment as well. View your backyards and parks in a whole new light after going on an arboreal eco-tour in this gorgeous tribute to trees.

    Seven sections describe the individual characteristics of trees and how they relate to the lives of humans, animals, and the environment. Cheerful couplets and repetitive phrases, excellent for reading aloud, explain how trees serve as food, comfort, music, and more. Written by Harriet Ziefert and illustrated by Brian Fitzgerald, Be Thankful for Trees is published by Blue Apple Books and print edition published by Red Comet Press.
