The Big Tree at George and Charlotte's House
Author, owner-builder and ecologist Tomm Stanley is back with his first new book in over two years. Departing from his sustainable, do-it-yourself home-building and alternative energy offerings of the past, Tomm entertains and educates adults and children alike about trees and their interactions with the environment in The Big Tree at George and Charlotte's House. Woven into the tale of two youngsters playing in a tree is an ecological learning adventure as we have never before experienced in print. Written on a variety of learning levels, The Big Tree at George and Charlotte's House takes us on a journey from a trees roots to its leaves and while educating us about how trees live also explores the vast array of relationships with insects, animals and plants that rely on them. The learning is first found within a delightfully illustrated tale of our two young friends, George and Charlotte, as they experience the trees world from the eyes of children. Added to this is a book within a book that discusses the same things George and Charlotte are discovering but in an educational format suited to older kids of all ages. As in his previous books, Tomm's easy to read style of educational writing comes through and the combination makes for a wonderful parent/child reading experience for those with little ones, easy to use fact finding for school kids right through to teenagers and still interesting to adults already aware of the importance of trees to our world. The Big Tree at George and Charlottes House is a book that can stay with us and our children for life; from a child's first look at the colorful pages until some time in the future when they may share it with new little friends or children of their own.
