Reviews

"A fascinating and detailed guide. ... [Wohlleben] has done a remarkable job ensuring that each page tells a complete story, answering questions ranging from how trees know when it is spring to why trees are important in the city." -Science Magazine "A forest's worth of appealing sidebars, pop-up quizzes with fascinating statistics, and colorful photographs add to a strong subtext: Forest preservation is not just important, but imperative. A tree-treatise treat." -Kirkus (Starred Review) [Can You Hear the Trees Talking?] is an outstanding introduction into the world of trees. Highly recommended for students of science, environment, and ecology. -School Library Journal(Starred Review) "As fascinating and relaxing as a stroll through the woods." -Booklist "[Can You Hear the Trees Talking] presentsa beautifully laid-out walk through the forest with a kindly guide, who points out fascinating sights and intriguing phenomena. Captivating, close-up photos illuminate the engaging text, making this both a superb classroom resource and a strong choice for young browsers." -Publishers Weekly "Can You Hear the Trees Talking? is a fantastic and accessible version of his bestselling The Hidden Life of Trees. [Wohlleben] poses a series of basic questions for his readers-can trees talk, are trees brave, do trees sleep at night, how do trees know when it's spring-and offers them his unique knowledge and shares his passion for trees, wonderful photographs of his forest and fun quizzes and simple activities." -The Globe and Mail "Curious kids will eat this one up, because it's full of facts!" -Romper "[Peter Wohlleben's] dedication, knowledge, and passion come through on every page of this book. Filled with whimsy, information, and activities, this book is a delight for children of all ages! " -Powell's Books "A delightful way to introduce children to the wonders of the trees and to the world of the forest....Any child who is curious about nature would love Can You Hear the Trees Talking?, and it would make a great book for family activities as well as for use in a traditional or homeschool curriculum." - Beth Fish Reads "Kid-friendly... could embraced by a science teacher for use in the class." -Kiss the Book Jr. From the New York Times bestselling author of The Hidden Life of Trees. "Children were talking with trees for centuries before scientists proved that trees communicate. What better guide to kids' conversation with our leafy neighbors than Peter Wohlleben, who revealed to adults the hidden lives of trees? This splendid book is bursting with exciting science. Better yet, Can You Hear The Trees Talking? fosters reverence and wonder for a forest far more magical than even fairy-tales claim." -Sy Montgomery, New York Times bestselling author and recipient of the Sibert Medal
