Trees and Shrubs

by Arabella B. Buckley


Description:  Fifth volume in the Eyes and No Eyes series, introduces children to trees and shrubs, encouraging them to ponder all the ways in which trees are useful to us. They learn how a tree starts and how it continues to grow year after year. They study an oak tree in detail, along with the animal life it supports, then contrast it with cone-bearing trees and trees of hedgerow, garden, and park. Eight color illustrations and numerous black and white drawings complement the text. 5.5 x 8.5 inches.
