Ready Set Draw! Kristen Borough ONE MILLION TREES.png

*"A charming account of a family who went to Canada to plant a million trees. The story is told through the eyes of the oldest daughter and features multiple learning opportunities: math problems, French words, interesting recipes to try, and plenty of facts about trees. The family camped with several other families and was tasked with planting tree plugs (seedlings) to replace trees in a section that had been cleared by lumberjacks. Balouch uses childlike drawings to give the story an appealing authenticity. The book resembles a peek inside a diary with drawings. There’s a surprise ending: The author takes her children back to the site to see the beautiful tree farm she helped plant when she was a girl. 

 

VERDICT This excellent resource about conservation and preserving nature has been ably rolled into a delightful reminiscence vividly retold.

—SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

"An intriguing tale that will plant seeds of environmental consciousness in the upcoming generation."
