"A really wonderful book to inspire a generation to love, protect and respect trees."
"[A] gorgeously illustrated nature and science book."
Learn about the amazing natural science of trees in this gorgeously illustrated nature and science children's book. From the highest branch and leaf down to the complex ""wood wide web"" of roots in the soil, every part of a tree plays an important role in its own growth and the habitat of the whole forest or woodland.
Did you know that trees take care of each other and that the whole forest is connected? DK's picture book The Magic & Mystery of Trees takes children on a fascinating journey of exploration, showing them just how special these mighty organisms are. Discover how they communicate and warn each other of predators, how they nurture their networks, record the past, and anticipate the future to ensure their survival.
Learn unbe-leaf-able tree facts, meet extraordinary trees from around the world and the animals that call them home. Find out what trees do for us and how we are damaging them with pollution and deforestation. But it's not too late to do something about it and you'll find out how you can help with instructions on how to plant your very own tree!
