There is a page in You and Me in the Trees where we see a loving couple and their child nestled in a tree trunk. There is light shining on them from their lantern as rain pours down outside. "If you protect her [mother nature], she'll protect you." You and Me in the Trees is an adorable children's book written by Amoris Walker and beautifully illustrated by Alyssa Gnos. We are taught not to judge books by their covers. However, the moment you lay your eyes on this book, you will know it's something special. You and Me in the Trees is a superb little book that will make young children conscious of nature, animals, and the environment in general. Regardless of whether or not Walker intended for this book to help children get acquainted with the ideas of environmentalism, it is a solid introduction to the subject.
Both young children and adults can enjoy this book together. I cannot emphasize enough how pretty Gnos's illustrations are - the word pretty does Gnos's art no justice. You will have to get the book yourself to see what I mean. The art leaps from the confines of its pages and pulls the reader in. Amoris Walker's words will whisk the young reader away on a nature-filled journey. Much like Dr. Seuss's books or other similar classics, You and Me in the Trees is written in a semi-rhyming fashion. It concludes as a bedtime story and would be the perfect book to read to your child as they unwind for bedtime.
