Monday: Weekly Family Activity—Plant a Tree Together
I have a new favorite book that I bought from The Land of Nod it is: A Tree is Nice by Janice May Udry and Marc Simont
“Trees are beautiful. They fill up the sky. If you have a tree, you can climb up its trunk, roll in its leaves, or hang a swing from one of its limbs. Cows and babies can nap in the shade of a tree. Birds can make nests in the branches. A tree is good to have around. A tree is nice.”
My favorite illustration is the black and white one of the boy fishing surrounded by trees. He looks so relaxed and at peace surrounded by the beautiful trees. When I think of my relationship with trees a similar picture comes to my mind.
You can also purchase it through Amazon:
-Read this book and have family drawing time where you draw your relationship with trees or a tree.
-Go outdoors to explore different kinds of trees with a field guide and teach your children the importance of trees.
-Spend some time drawing, reading, talking, resting, playing around the trees.
-Find a place where you and your family can plant a tree!
The Arbor Day Foundationis a great site to do a little research and planning before having your Tree Family Activity.
