You can swing from a tree, climb a tree, seek shelter under a tree… trees are nice. You can plant one, live next to one, eat fruit from one. Trees are a vital part of our existence. They are everywhere and we couldn’t live without them. A Tree Is Nice by Janice May Udry, is a classic, but is as relevant today as it was when it won the Caldecott award in 1957. Through simple, easy to read text, the author describes the many roles trees have in our lives. Ink and watercolor illustrations by Marc Simont alternate with ink illustrations and allow for bold contrasts and highlight many key phrases in the book. If you go out exploring, or want to teach your child something important about the world we live in, this may be the book for you. See this book listed in our catalog
