It isn't tree planting time yet in our area, still too many days of frost and no leaves on the trees. But we are gearing up for planting season with some tree planting books.
Sid the Science Kid is a great science based show that my kids love and last year after Earth Day I found this book. There is a ton of great information about dirt in there, presented in a way that little ones can understand. Plus the activities that the kids do in school, in the book, are really neat and ones that I would like to try when the girls are a bit older!
The Mangrove Tree by Susan L. Roth and Cindy Trumbore is a style of book that I just love! They have bigger text at the top of each page that is rhyming, tells the story and presents the story in a way that is appropriate for young kids. But then along the sides of the pages there is more information about the trees, the people and the real story. I love that a parent could get this book and read have it work for both a younger child and an older child!
