Did you know that trees communicate with each other through their roots? An amazing book called The Gentle Gentius of Trees taught me some fantastic new information. It is a non-fiction picture book that is perfect for students of all ages.
Younger students may enjoy the pictures and diagrams whilst older students may enjoy the scientific facts about trees.
At first I thought the book wouldn’t be that interesting, but after I read a few pages I was hooked.
The trees are definately smarter than you think. What would happen to the world if we didn’t have trees? Read this book to find out!
