When it’s time to go to bed, Beatrice imagines how much fun it would be to stay outside with the trees all night long. If she were a tree, she would have a trunk and branches and lots of leaves. Her roots would reach deep. She would catch the morning sun with her limbs and cradle a bird’s nest in her branches. And when the air turned crisp, Beatrice would wait patiently for spring.
From Joyce Hesselberth, the award-winning creator of Pitter Pattern, comes a charming picture book that introduces young readers to everything there is to know about trees. Through Beatrice's imagination, kids will see how important trees are to our planet, and learn some of the basics of the science behind trees. With extra backmatter packed with even more details, this is the perfect read aloud to encourage kids to see the trees outside their windows in a new way!
