An engaging introduction to the ecology of trees and forests, Treecology contains over 100 beautiful color images of trees, leaves, blooms, forest wildlife, and more. Kids learn about the interwoven lives of plants and animals making up the forest community: the food, nesting sites, and safe roosting and resting places that trees and forests provide to wildlife. This useful book also includes "street trees" commonly seen along city streets and parks, allowing any child to learn about their local tree communities. Through 30 simple and fun activities, young readers learn how to obverse the diversity of leaf shapes, the textures of tree bark, and evidence of forest creatures. The activities promote the development of science, writing, math, arts and crafts, and observation skills. Also included are a glossary and list of teacher topics for classroom use.

Terrific information and activities for studying trees in any season. I especially like the idea of creating a Forest Logbook and adding to it as you complete more activities from the book. I'd recommend this one for nature nerds and newbies alike!
