Trees For Kids and Their Grown Ups

Spring has been cold and slow coming here in Northern Michigan. We've had little bits of warm weather, but as I wandered the woods this week, the trillium is just starting to open, and the trees were just starting to leaf out. Skunk cabbage is popping up with lovely chartreuse leaves and trout lilies are opening. 

I can't wait until those trees leaf out though with their perfect little leaves, in a rainbow of green. The kids and I will definitely be spending more time outside, taking it in. So in celebration of leaves, here's a collection of book all about trees!
