Description
Just Like Me, Climbing a Tree explores 12 of the most distinctive trees from across the globe, and includes educational notes about each of the trees to help answer questions that curious young minds might have.

Just Like Me is not just a book about facts, but a very “hands-on” multicultural book. Each page puts the young reader up close with a remarkable tree. Yael Bernhard’s playful poem winds through the pages like a vine that wants to be climbed. In the voice of a musing child, with a subtle rhythm and rhyme, the poem imagines what it would be like if I started climbing a tree and found myself in an adventure of discovery. Each climb and each adventure leads to insights into the marvelous world of nature found in every tree, whether in our backyards or on the other side of the planet.

Details on “Just Like Me, Climbing a Tree”

Just Like Me, Climbing a Tree explores 12 of the most distinctive trees from across the globe, and includes educational notes about each of the trees to help answer questions that curious young minds might have.

Just Like Me is not just a book about facts, but a very “hands-on” multicultural book. Each page puts the young reader up close with a remarkable tree. Yael Bernhard’s playful poem winds through the pages like a vine that wants to be climbed. In the voice of a musing child, with a subtle rhythm and rhyme, the poem imagines what it would be like if I started climbing a tree and found myself in an adventure of discovery. Each climb and each adventure leads to insights into the marvelous world of nature found in every tree, whether in our backyards or on the other side of the planet.

While the poem and illustrations offer an experiential learning experience in themselves, also indirectly encouraging a child to explore trees and nature on her own, the appendix to the book offers more facts about the trees, such as their range, habits, uses, and interesting points such as: “The kapok tree was sacred to the Mayan people and an important source of healing medicine. They believed a departing soul could ascend to heaven by rising up the trunk of a great mythical kapok tree.” This section may be for adults and older readers, but you will want to share some of this with your children, too!
