Spring is a season of new life. What do you love about trees in the spring? Is it all the “buds, like beads, getting bigger on the branches,” or all the “brand-new leaves?”
The Things That I LOVE about TREES is the loveliest ode to trees with observations about their many changes throughout the year and reasons why they hold such dear places in our hearts. In addition, readers learn arboreal habits of each season, such as how trees do most of their growing in spring and early summer. And how “in hot weather, a big tree can drink as much as bathtubful” of water each day! Charlotte Voake’s delicate, soft palette and organic, expressive line is a perfect complement to Chris Butterworth’s unique text.
