Guides readers back to the source of people's knowledge about a specific subject, then moves them forward through the present to the future. Contains interactive elements including: an embossed page of bark textures, a minibook, open flaps, acetate page, and reusable vinyl stickers.
The book is actually very informative for a children’s research book. The contents include: “How trees came to be”, “From seed to tree”, “The growth of a forest”, “All around the world”, “Day and Night in the forest”, and other information on the inner workings of the forest and its wildlife. The book does not dumb down the science of the trees; it will first explain a certain topic, than go into further detail and use scientific words. All the trees listed in the book are also classified by their scientific name.
