A Tree Is Nice was written by Janice May Udry with pictures by Marc Simont. It was published in 1956. The book is based on good descriptions of what trees do, how you can plant them and what they look like. It teaches the kids easy lessons.

This book would be great for young elementary. This book has colorful pictures for the students to look at. The colors in a book can interest different students. The story is a great lighthearted story for young elementary kids to hear.

This is a Caldecott winning book. It has great drawings of the woods. It‘s a good book to encourage kids to go play outside.

A Caldecott award winning book(pub.1956). Book gives great description of trees. Not only shows children that it's important to have tree's around for fun, but that we need tree's to live.
I think that the illustrations are very simple. The color usage is beautiful as well. “A tree is nice because it makes shade.“ Although there are other reasons as to why one should like a tree, this book opens up the conversation to children about saving trees.

#HopIntoSpring Day 26: This gorgeous photo of majestic #Trees was taken by my husband when we took a Napa Valley Wine Tour back in 2009. It was the first time that we have seen autumn-coloured trees and we were awe-struck. Tagged book is lovely and a good alternative to the hackneyed and oft-utilized The Giving Tree.

TracyReadsBooks Beautiful photo! Love the alternative to The Giving Tree—which makes me mad every time I read it! (Of course, I‘m the contrary one. It makes the other librarians cry!) (edited) 4y

An Illinois Reads 2016 title. A very nice and classic book about what it's like to have your very own tree.
