Trees are tall, strong, ancient, and easily thought of as silent statues. Tree Beings challenges this perception, instead celebrating trees as our best allies in the fight to slow down climate change. In exploring this, it centres around four 'big ideas': trees give life to the planet, trees can help save us from climate change, trees are like beings, and trees need our help and protection. In a vibrant combination of illustrations and text, it blends true stories and science to explain how trees are essential to our world.
Introduced by world-renowned conservationist Dr. Jane Goodall, Tree Beings contains accounts of a scientist who discovered how trees 'talk', the young woman with the world record for living up a tree, a boy who mobilised other children to fight climate change, the first brave tree-hugging women, and a man responsible for trillions of tree-plantings. Learn to appreciate trees through the stories of people who love them, while also reading about tree wisdom from many cultures, and some famous and fascinating tree species.
