I wanted to use it to incorporate more nature study into our lives, and we live in a large city so we often use books instead of nature walks.

We are studying botany next year and saw that this book was recommended by Memoria Press. The book is lovely although the trees are more common in the northern parts of the US. We live in the southwest.
