It’s the last week of our #EnvironmentMonth celebrations, and we’re doffing our hat to the lungs of the planet: trees. Beautiful, nurturing and providing comfort to those who seek it, trees are the lifeline of the planet. Here are some beautiful books that celebrate trees in all their glory and also include stories of people who go out of their way to save trees. Free to read, download and share, and available in multiple languages.
Every Tree Counts by Praba Ram, Sheela Preuitt and Sangeetha Kadur
From the stately Deodar and colourful Coral to the majestic Banyan and common Pipal, the book takes children on a journey across varied landscapes as they count trees, and picture the uses of each tree. Look around you to find more trees, and learn what these terrific trees can do.
My Tree-Friend by Shreekumar Varma and Rae Zachariah
We all know trees are our friends. But can friends be trees too? Just like the fruits in Ammoomma’s trees, friends can be sweet, sour, or both!
A Walk Among Trees by Nimret Handa
Trees have been growing on our planet well before human beings appeared on it. Without their comforting shade and tasty fruit, our earth would be quite a barren place. Take a walk among trees in the King’s orchard to savour the taste, the smell and the legends associated with bountiful fruit trees in India. You will feel refreshed by all that you learn!
Hope you enjoyed climbing up many trees through this post and enjoyed all the #EnvironmentMonth updates throughout the month of June!
