Canadian Book Reading for Children

"Picture a Tree"

What do you see when you look at a tree? Look closely and you may be surprised!

From bare branches tracing the sky to an explosion of color, a place for adventure or a friend to shelter us from the sun – a tree can be so many things.

At the next book reading session we will read "Picture a Tree", written and illustrated by Barbara Reid, whose plasticine magic and lyrical text capture trees in all their splendour. This story also provides a wonderful introduction to Earth Day, the largest environmental event in the world, celebrated every year on April 22.

Our book reading session is supported by the Canadian Children's Book Centre, a national not-for-profit organization founded in 1976 to encourage, promote and support the reading, writing, illustrating and publishing of Canadian books to young readers.
