Description

Introducing 20 of our most interesting native trees to young New Zealand naturalists, Sandra Morris presents charming watercolour illustrations and text in a style that mirrors her earlier successful book, Discovering New Zealand Birds. Each tree is shown in full with individual illustrations of the leaves, flower parts, seed heads, and any insects, animals and birds that co-exist with or frequent the tree. In addition there are notes and illustrations to depict early Maori and European uses for each tree. Included are kauri, tree ferns, beeches, cabbage tree, nikau, pohutukawa, manuka, kanuka, rewarewa, puriri, kowhai, lancewood, taire, karaka, tree daisies, kahikatea, rimu, totara, matai, and miro. Children will learn about different types of forest in 'What is a tree?' at the beginning of the book and an index and bibliography complete an effective natural history resource that is sure to be popular with children and teachers alike.
