Format: Hardcover
Printed on 100% recycled paper to help preserve trees, If I Were A Tree is a vertical-shaped children's picturebook featuring simple verse and stunning, colorful collage illustrations. Paying homage to the important role trees serve in daily life, If I Were A Tree encourages young readers to consider what it would be like to actually be a tree. "If I were a tree, / I would wave to you / whenever / the wind blows. // How would it be / if you were a tree?" The final pages of If I Were a tree offer fun facts about trees to inquisitive young minds. Highly recommended.

It's hard to start raving about a book when it has so many good qualities! First I'll start with it's illustrations since that is a very important part of any book! The illustrations are just absolutely beautiful! They are very colorful and each page is different and beautiful! The verses that make this book is lyrical and can be used to create conversations on what type of tree you and your child would like to be! On the books last page is a diagram of a tree and also some tree facts.

Dar Hosta wrote on the page after the title page: Hello friends, What is it that makes us love a tree? For thousands of years, trees have inspired poets, writer, musicians, and artists and have been featured in folklore, mythology and story telling of ever culture on Earth.Trees are a symbol of strength and grace. A tree may represent family, marriage, knowledge, life, and love. Trees can be part of our childhood memories, often growing up along with us. Their steadfastness and longevity make them the silent witness to an ever-changing world.
