|Summary:||Trees are vital to the existence of all living things, as they serve numerous practical and aesthetic functions. This feature book beautifully weaves together the important relationship among all living things, and primarily our dependence on trees to provide food, shelter and the air we breathe. Trees serve many roles. They provide oxygen, homes, food, shelter, and shade for people and animals. They also store and recycle water, and help to hold the soil in place. In this show focusing on the importance and beauty of trees, we join LeVar in a forest, visit with a scientist who studies trees, and learn about how sugar is made from LeVar's favorite tree, the sugar maple. This PDF includes 4 activities: Oxygen Production; A Place in the Sun (and a follow-up activity); A Room With a View; and That Special Something.|
