What Do You See When You Look at a Tree?

author/illustrator: Emma Carlisle

What do you see when you look at a tree? Leaves and twigs and branches?
Or do you see a living thing that moves and breathes and dances?

Full of finely drawn forest scenes, this gentle picture book encourages children to explore their connections with nature. Award-winning artist Emma Carlisle asks readers to consider how each tree is different, what they have witnessed in their centuries of life, what animals they have sheltered, and who may have played under their branches. Exploring growth through the eyes of a child, this lovely picture book urges readers to connect with the world around them, fostering a deeper appreciation for the natural environment and their place within it.
