Tree Beings: Raymond Huber and Sandra Severgnini
Trees are tall, strong, ancient, and easily thought of as silent statues. Tree Beings challenges this perception, instead celebrating trees as our best allies in the fight to slow down climate change. In exploring this, it centres around four big ideas: trees give life to the planet, trees can help save us from climate change, trees are like beings, and trees need our help and protection. In a vibrant combination of illustrations and text, it blends true stories and science to explain how trees are essential to our world.
