My Friends, The trees – A small Handbook about Trees

Reka Kiraly & Jenni Erkintalo

In this small handbook, readers learn about various types of trees and their environment, the forest. Leaves, tree trunks, and other elements are compared, taking a closer look at the aspects that distinguish certain trees from others.

There are some easy-to-follow instructions on how to build a pine-pig, a small sailboat and other nature crafts. The reader is also introduced to tree and forest-related idioms that various languages have around the world.

Moreover, more important questions like what would happen if the forest would disappear and how would our planet breathe, are answered. My Friends, The Trees hopes to awaken children’s curiosity about the forest, their love for nature and inspire them to be more outdoors.

A funny green forest creature named Buu guides the reader throughout the book.
