“There is more than one way to picture a tree.” A lushly illustrated ode to trees in all their forms and grandeur.

I liked it more than the children, I think my group was a little too young for this story - more for age 4 and older.

I have always loved Barbra Reid's work. She is a very talented sculptor and brings stories to life with her imagery. She has only gotten better :)

What I love about Picture a Tree is that it not only makes for an eye-popping visual jaw-dropper, and that it not only reads like a dream, but that it also fulfills a purpose. Kids need tree books. Good tree books. Original tree books that won’t bore them to tears. Reid delivers. Hers is a book you can enjoy any time of the year in any context, tree assignment or no tree assignment. Celebrate Arbor Day early. Grab yourself a bit o’ tree. A book that makes its pulped paper proud.

I love to look at Barbara Reid illustrations, done in detail and fun colours and all with plasticine. Different.
The book is easy to read and has about one sentence per page.

Endpapers display trees in a myriad of forms, from thunderstruck deciduous to the mushrooms that grow on a trunk. Says the text, “There is more than one way to picture a tree”. You might consider that the tree sporting birds or snow is engaged in a game of dress-up. Or you might think a tree-lined walkway a tunnel or (seen from above) an ocean. Delving deftly into the many different ways that trees can be seen and interpreted and equated with the humans that dart above their roots, Reid creates all new ways of looking at and enjoying our fine leafy friends. Her final words, “Picture a tree. What do you see?”
