Spring is here, and with the new season come trees full of life, color. . .and blossoms!
During a stroll through the forest, two children come across the small and white flowers on a crab apple tree, the rich, red buds on a red maple, and many more. Along the way, readers learn that some trees have both male and female flowers—each with a distinctive appearance. Back matter includes extended botanical facts and more information about trees and their life cycles.
Told in lyrical rhymes with beautiful linoleum-cut illustrations. Written by Carole Gerber. Illustrated by Leslie Evans. Hardcover; 32 pages.
