Gus Is A Tree by Claire Babin is about a boy who falls asleep under a tree during recess at school. His vivid dream prompted our campers to think about what it might be like to be a tree. What sounds would you hear? What animals would land upon your branches? How would you change with the seasons?
Emma and Anna are trees.
The beautiful illustrations by Olivier Tallac provided the inspiration to create self portraits and then draw what a tree version of us might look like.
If you are looking for a book that can put you into a tree-like state of mind, Gus Is A Tree is a great choice. It also includes important tree vocabulary, facts and photographs.
