Trees and Their World

Botany Grades 7–8 Extension
Level 7

“KEYOO, keyoo!” a sapsucker called as he flew through the woods. Soon he alighted on the trunk of a sugar maple. The maple stood at the edge of a pasture. Its trunk, therefore, was not very tall, and its branches spread upward in all directions.

Trees and Their World takes readers on a unique journey from the forest to the swamp. This beautiful book exposes the fascinating inner workings of what are sometimes considered plain, ordinary trees. In a relatable storytelling fashion, with rich vocabulary and beautiful illustrations, readers learn about the inner workings of trees from leaf tip to root end and are given visual glimpses of the often overlooked beauty and details of these wonderful creations and of the world around them.

88 pages, written by Carroll Lane Fenton & Dorothy Constance Pallas
