Picture a Tree - Barbara Reid

Picture a Tree
Barbara Reid
ISBN 9781443107617

My family and I love the books by Barbara Reid so much. And to be honest I never thought she would create a book I would love more than Perfect Snow but she has done it. This book completely blew us away. The detail and intricacy of the plasticine illustrations of trees is mind-boggling. We can spend ages just going over the inside jackets and all the details in them. This book travels around the seasons and through various locations with a plethora of types, sizes and styles of trees. Even as an adult, it is amazing to go through the illustrations and pick out the details and quality of artwork. This is a wonderful book that we will treasure for years to come!
