Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3--This inviting, oversized book lives up to its subtitle. The large watercolor pictures, peopled by children of various ethnic backgrounds, make it a perfect book for classroom sharing. Gibbons discusses the parts of the tree and their functions, types of fruits and seeds, kinds of bark, and uses for trees. She includes a discussion of photosynthesis and gives directions for students to make their own tree identification books. Relevant terms are highlighted in the text and identified in the illustrations. It's a good book to team with Diane Burns's Trees, Leaves, and Bark (NorthWord, 1995; o.p.) and Arthur Dorros's A Tree Is Growing (Scholastic, 1997).

From Booklist

Ages 4-8. In this large-format guide, Gibbons discusses the parts of a tree and their functions, the growth of trees, and the different types of trees. She introduces topics such as photosynthesis and the meaning of terms such as phloem and cambium. In the almost wordless section on identification, the shapes of 15 different trees are shown alongside close-ups of their leaves and bark. The book closes with a discussion of how trees are useful to people, animals, and the environment, and directions for making a tree identification book. The bright watercolor illustrations show cheerful children and adults observing, planting, using, and enjoying many kinds of trees. In this simple, informative book, Gibbons provides a basic guide that is sure to please parents and teachers as well as children. Carolyn Phelan

Format: Hardcover
Written and illustrated by Gail Gibbons, Tell Me, Tree: All About Trees For Kids is a simple yet appealing book about the life cycle of trees for beginning readers. The informative text is enhanced throughout with color illustrations teaching young people about the parts of the tree and how it grows, as well as how to identify some of the more common trees of North America. Tell Me, Tree is a very highly recommended and educational book of fun facts for grades 1 through 3.

Format: Hardcover
Solid intro to basic concepts regarding trees. I occasionally wished Gibbons would have chosen the more scientifically correct term than a common, but less specific word. Includes an identification guide for various trees and shows young naturalists how to make their own tree identification book (pressing leaves, leaf and bark rubbings, and drawings).

I ordered this book sight unseen for my three year old granddaughter because it is her favorite book at the public library. I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived because of its very good content. I am a retired science teacher and taught a unit on trees and leaves for many years, so I've seen a lot of mediocre texts and classificatio books. When my granddaughter opened the book on Christmas morning, you should have seen her face; she obviously has good taste in non-fiction books!

This is not a read to me at bedtime book. Very detailed. No child in it's intended age range could have you read it to him in one sitting, or two, or three or four! But a great learning-reference book. All kind of information if you have time to spend with your child at home and in the field.

This is a good kid-level book about trees. The pictures are lovely and it's easy to understand- even I learned a few new things! It's a rather "involved" book in that it may be better for a classroom or reference than a bedtime book, but it's great none-the-less!
