[2 years +] We Planted a Tree – by Diane Muldrow and illustrated by Bob Staake.

This book will warm your heart and is full of talking points and great information about the benefits of trees, that is easy enough for young children to understand.  I could read it over and over!

Different cultures are featured throughout the book as well as how they are all similar, sharing family time and growing up together, as the trees and gardens do too.

The illustrations are beautiful and have plenty to look at.  There are also features indicating a certain country on each page, that can be discussed with your little one.

You will need to read this book several times just to be able to track the different families featured and to take in all that is has to offer.
