The Things That I LOVE about TREES

By Chris Butterworth
Illustrated by Charlotte Voake

A very young non-fiction picture book that looks at how a tree changes with the seasons, with charming illustrations from an internationally acclaimed artist.

Learn how a plum tree changes with the seasons in this charming non-fiction picture book. Chris Butterworth's gentle, lyrical text describes how the buds of the plum tree bloom in the spring and how its leaves grow green and lush in the summer. Time goes by, and soon we see those same leaves fall in the autumn – now the branches are bare for the cold winter-months. With exquisite watercolour illustrations by Charlotte Voake, this is a book to treasure. “A breezy and zestful picture-book appreciation of trees and the changes they undergo with the cycle of the seasons” – Wall Street Journal

  • Provides a clear, engaging description of the life-cycle of a tree.
  • The back-matter includes an index and suggestions for fun activities involving trees.
  • Charlotte previously illustrated the Nature Storybooks Caterpillar Butterfly and Insect Detective. Caterpillar Butterfly was shortlisted for the Kurt Maschler Award and Insect Detective was the winner of the 2010 English 4-11 Best Illustrated Book Award in the Key Stage 1 Non-fiction category.
