Fun poetry and art surrounding trees. The author of this book did their best to adjust form to make each poem fun and interesting.

Fun poetry and artwork inspired by trees, and the poetry itself is often very visual. Great for kids who enjoy wordplay and love trees. It also includes a "Glossatree" which provides information about the trees in the poems.
