This fall or spring (or any season) incorporate these books as you look at trees. Books About Trees for Preschoolers. Tree: A Peek-Through Picture Book by Britta Teckentrup Die cuts in the pages of this book show animals appear (and disappear) around a tree throughout the seasons. Throughout it all, an owl sits in a hole in the middle of the tree.   The Language of Trees is a magical and lyrical novel written by Ilie haunting and gripping tone of the novel is set from the poetic and sensory first sentence, “The silken hair of the three children glows bone white in the moonlight as they paddle the stolen canoe out into the icy waters of Canandaigua Lake.”.

The symbolic power of a beautiful flower or majestic tree has been utilized for hundreds of years to communicate beyond words. In the Victorian era of England (late s), a kind of language using plants, trees, and flowers called “floriography” was particularly popular. Peter Wohlleben, a German forester and author, has a rare understanding of the inner life of trees, and is able to describe it in accessible, evocative language.

But trees might be among our lushest metaphors and sensemaking frameworks for knowledge precisely because the richness of what they say is more than metaphorical — they speak a sophisticated silent language, communicating complex information via smell, taste, and electrical impulses.   The size of the leaves on the trees is intended to indicate – roughly – how many people speak each language. It shows the relative size of English as well as its Germanic roots. Photograph.
