A lyrical narrative and lovely, graphic illustrations pay tribute to the beauty and importance of the trees all around us.

Trees change through the seasons — springing to life, bearing fruit, and losing their leaves before a period of sleep. They clean the air we breathe, provide seeds and homes for creatures, and extend their shade to everyone equally. Throughout all these changes, trees are constant, patiently learning to grow and flourish wherever they might be. Trees is a reverent and poetic homage that invites the reader to take a closer look at these magnificent beings.

About the Author:

Lemniscates is an author/illustrator/designer collective that creates children’s books and storybook apps. Established in Barcelona in 2010, Lemniscates has a special interest in books that encourage creative thinking and curiosity about subjects such as nature, the environment, friendship, adoption, fear, and self-acceptance.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 1—A beautiful introduction to the many ways trees enrich our world. The minimal text begins with the cycle of the seasons and continues through the ways that trees and humans affect each other's environments. Most spreads contain a single sentence, the information presented ranging from fairly straightforward facts such as, "Trees provide homes to many," to statements such as, "Trees use their roots to communicate and to help one another," which touch on complex processes that may require further explanation. A small black bird on each spread establishes continuity and is a visual link among concepts. Near the end, a white-skinned child appears, hugging a tree, enjoying its shade, and, finally, planting seeds that sprout into a young seedling, a symbol of hope for the future. Considering the narrow topic, young audiences will find much to admire in Lemniscates's digital images. Depicting bare winter branches, bright flowers sprouting in spring, and summer trees lush and round in their fullness, the art offers plenty of visual variety and interest. Rich coloring and textures reminiscent of ink and watercolor create a hand-painted feel, elevating the simple narrative. VERDICT A solid family read-aloud or a conservation primer for preschoolers. The striking illustrations and accessible information make this a first purchase.—Chelsea Couillard-Smith, Hennepin County Library, MN
