A coloring story and twelve ideas for outings for young and old to discover the extraordinary trees in Brussels' parks and gardens.
This book invites children aged 3 and over to set off on an adventure through the streets, gardens and most beautiful parks of Brussels, to discover 20 extraordinary trees: the giants, the oldest, the hidden treasures... At once an invitation to discover the city, its neighborhoods and its cultural and natural riches, and a book of games and fun activities, the book's aim is to encourage children to become aware of the importance of nature in the city, and of trees in particular. It's an invitation to observe and get to know them.
Following Léo the cat, children will color, draw, imagine, play and discover the different types of trees, the seasons, and also how a tree lives and dies. Who are these "giants" all around us, visible or hidden like treasures in the city? What animals and insects do trees shelter? What role does nature play in the city? At the end of the booklet, a map gives you all the information you need to go for a walk through the city and find the trees mentioned throughout the book.
