From a Tree to a Chair
written by Roseanne McDonald
illustrated by Mary Barrows
Look around you. Do you see something made of wood? A chair or table, a toy or tool, perhaps
even the building you're in right now? Have you ever wondered where these items come from?
Prepare to find out! Beginning at a busy logging site deep in the woods, we'll follow the journey of a tree as it is harvested, processed into lumber, and carefully crafted into a beautiful set of chairs. With a deep respect for the trees, and for the useful things they give us, this book reveals all the hard work that goes into making the items we take for granted every day.
PRAISE FOR FROM A TREE TO A CHAIR:
"Rose McDonald takes an innovative look at how the trees we live under become the furniture we use. Readers will see just how much goes into the process, and may even be inspired to pursue one of the many careers described. From a Tree to a Chair is interesting and fun."
—Rob McCallum, social studies teacher and former newspaper reporter from timber country
