This is a great informational non fiction book that is an awesome way to explain to children in simple terms why recycling is important!

A Tree is Nice by Janice May Udry is a picture book with illustrations by Marc Simont. This book is a Caldecott Medal winner. It is a good book with interesting illustrations. It doesn‘t focus on any social issues and would be a good extension book for outdoor or autumn based activities.

A Tree Is Nice | Marc Simont, Janice May Udry

A Tree is Nice uses an interesting illustration style. Every other page set is black and white. This contrast of color versus black and white is a bit confusing because it never really says why they do it. The book gives lots of ideas of how a tree can be used and would be a good extension for an outdoor activity.

“A tree is nice because it has a trunk and limbs. We can climb the tree and see over all the yards. We can sit on a limb and think about things. Or play pirate ship up in the tree.”

I loved this book! Incredible read, and filled with so many facts! A great book to read to your students to get them to be little environmentalists! Definitely a good book to read before introducing a green project within the classroom!

More love for this wonderful book. It was challenged in 2015 for containing images of poverty & for downplaying American Exceptionalism.

Boots says, “Hiss!!!” to book bans!
