A Tree Is Nice

        The book A Tree Is Nice is a story about the characteristics of trees. A young boy describes different things that he thinks make trees nice. For example, he says that, trees are nice because they fill up the sky, trees are nice because they have leaves, trees are nice because cats can get away from dogs by climbing up a tree. He also says, "trees make the woods, they make everything beautiful".

    In the end, the young boy explains how to plant a tree.
A Tree Is Nice is good book to read if someone is interested in the characteristics of trees. This book gives us a lot of reasons to be thankful for trees.

Can you think of any more reasons why a tree is nice?
What is your favorite type of tree?
