Trees and Forests is a book all ages will enjoy, but would be best utilized in a 3rd-5th grade classroom. The book is colorful and glossy, with pages that fold out, revealing more information, and many pictures of trees and animals. The book has some sections that have tactile pictures, like bark,

that is raised on the page and offers children the chance to feel the simulation of the barks wood. The book also comes with stickers that are labeled to be placed in certain parts of the book.
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.
