Spring is here, and with the new season come trees full of life, color . . . and blossoms! From the creators of LEAF JUMPERS and WINTER TREES, SPRING BLOSSOMS introduces readers to a variety of different flowering trees.
During a stroll through the forest, two children come across the small and white flowers on a crab apple tree, the rich, red buds on a red maple, and many more. Along the way, readers learn that some trees have both male and female flowers—each with a distinctive appearance. Back matter includes extended botanical facts and more information about trees and their life cycles.
Told in lyrical rhymes with beautiful linoleum-cut illustrations, SPRING BLOSSOMS offers a unique blend of science, poetry, and art studies.
Carole Gerber is the author of many books for children, including LEAF JUMPERS, WINTER TREES, and ARCTIC DREAMS. She lives in Columbus, Ohio.
"[A] book that brings the essence of spring to life."
". . . a unique contribution to informational literature. Given the new Common Core priorities, this book is real plus."
