Explore nature and nurture your love for gardening in the picture book Tree for Me by poet and author Carole Garber and illustrator Helena Pérez García, perfect for Arbor Day, Father’s Day, and beyond!
There are amazing trees that live in our world—yellow poplar, American beech, crepe myrtle, and so many more! But how do you know which ones are which?
Follow along in this heartwarming tale as a father lovingly teaches his son to identify eight common trees in a park and then surprises him with his own tree to plant and nurture. With beautiful, realistic illustrations and true facts interwoven throughout the story, A Tree for Me makes learning about trees fun! And as a bonus, resources to help you pick and plant a tree are included at the end of the story, so you can surprise your child with a trip to the nursery and their very own “tree for me.”
