The Secrets of Trees

by Massimo Domenico Novellino, Ester Castelnuovo, Valentina Figus
Designed especially for curious young minds, The Secrets of Trees reveals the remarkable mysteries of nature while igniting a deep appreciation for the world around us.
Through engaging storytelling and fascinating illustrations, children will uncover the extraordinary secrets that lie within the anatomy of trees. As they flip through the pages, young readers will learn how trees communicate, nourish themselves, and support the diverse ecosystems they inhabit. They'll marvel at the ingenious ways trees adapt to their environment – and vice versa – from defending against predators to harnessing the power of sunlight for growth. They will also be invited to reflect on how trees and humans coexist.
