Trees are impressive beings, and their secrets, magic, and wisdom have always fascinated people. This colorful book tells us many of the mysteries of trees—such as which tree gives us strength; which leaves and blossoms can be made into soothing ointments and delicious teas; and which tree can be entrusted with our secrets.

Children are encouraged to use all their senses in getting to know thirteen common trees. Activities include stories, songs, games, and craft ideas, as well as traditional rituals associated with trees; simple recipes for food and the medicine cabinet; and fun skills to learn from different trees.

This richly illustrated, practical book is perfect for use in school and at home, with activities for all the family to enjoy.
