Identifying trees

First Field Guide: Trees

Produced by the National Audubon Society, this book serves as both study guide and field guide to North American trees. It helps kids distinguish the two classes of tree (needleleaf and broadleaf), explains how forests grow, and shows how to identify certain trees by shape, leaf, fruit, or bark.

The field guide portion provides a wealth of detail about height, leaf and flower arrangement, habitat, and range. Lots of close-up photos showcase the beauty of trees.

A good book to encourage a walk in a park.
