Grade 2-4-- Readers will find themselves looking at trees with new eyes after reading this book. A continous narrative, unbroken by either table of contents or chapter divisions, points out why the parts of the tree shown in the full-color photographs look the way they do. Inner structures, photosynthesis, the role of water, classification, and reproduction are among the topics covered. The scientifically precise vocabulary is explained in a glossary that also serves as an index. The photos often take up more of the page than the text; some are enlarged 2,000 times. Readers see cross sections of a pine needle, a root tip, and an oak leaf, as well as half a dozen pictures of wonderfully textured bark. There is also a beautiful shot of redwoods in mist. An excellent visual guide, this book will be useful for projects and offers a smorgasbord of facts for both researchers and browsers. --Sharon Levin, University of Vermont, Burlington
