Learn all about the woods, experience each sound and smell and explore all the hidey-holes and cosy dens of its dwellers with this big and beautifu...l book all about forests, published in partnership with The Woodland Trust, the largest woodland conservation charity in the UK. Marvel at the peaceful twilight of the deciduous forest, where birds gather twigs, bats shelter in tree trunks and the carpet of fallen leaves becomes small creatures' homes. Spot a bald eagle soaring high up in the winter sky through the towering green giants of the redwood forest. Discover all the noises in the Amazonian rainforest, where most creatures live in the tree canopy together, creating a symphony of sounds. Each forest has something special to offer and is invaluable. Into the Forest is a celebration of trees and wildlife all around the world. Children will find out how trees change colour through seasons, how to plant their own trees and the importance of protecting our forests through sustainability. At the end of the book there's a glossary, full of fun trees with surprising names!

            A unique and beautiful children's guide to the extraordinary world of plants, from the smallest seeds to the tallest trees. We couldn't live without plants. We need them for food, shelter, even the air we breathe, yet we know surprisingly little about them. Why do thistles bristl...e with spines? How do some plants trap and eat insects? Did you know there are trees more than 5,000 years old? Trees, Leaves, Flowers & Seeds explores the mysterious world of plants to find the answers to these and many more questions. Each type of plant - such as a flowering plant, a tree, a grass, or cactus - is examined close-up, with an example shown from all angles and even in cross-section. Then picture-packed galleries show the wonderful variety of plants on different themes, perhaps the habitat they grow in, a flower family, or the plants that supply us with our staple foods. But the book also takes a fun, more sideways look at some truly weird and wonderful plants, including trees with fruits like a giant's fingers, orchids that look like monkey faces, seeds that spin like helicopters, and trees that drip poison. So open this fascinating book and find out more about the amazing world of trees, leaves, flowers, and seeds.

Do bonsai grow better indoors or out? When is the best time to prune? Happy Bonsai has all the answers. Specialist techniques - such as repotting, wire-training branches, defoliating, and root and branch pruning - are explained with illustrations for each stage of the process, and there are demonstrations of how to achieve the main types of bonsai styles, from an informal upright specimen to a forest group or root-over-rock display. Busting myths and making bonsai accessible to everyone, Happy Bonsai will help you fall in love with this meditative garden craft.

            Join the rewilding movement and fill your outdoor space with nature. Wilding your garden will create a little nature reserve and help increase the number of habitats for our wildlife. The Butterfly Brothers are specialists at creating spaces for wildlife; they showed Gardeners' W...orld and Springwatch how to do it, and now they can help you too. If we all made a place for wildlife in our garden, we'd transform levels of biodiversity and help combat wildlife habitat loss, plummeting pollinator numbers, and carbon emissions. But it's not just a question of letting the weeds take over - there's an art and balance to rewilding a garden well so that you can enjoy it too. The Butterfly Brothers are experts at designing wildlife-friendly gardens, and in Wild Your Garden, they show you how to work with nature, support wildlife, and create a self-maintaining, no-dig balance of planting, whether you have a large garden or an urban balcony. Transform a paved-over yard into a lush oasis, create refuges to welcome endangered species, or turn a high-maintenance lawn into a mini-meadow with the potential to absorb carbon and air pollution. The projects don't require specialist gardening knowledge or lots of land, so whatever size space you have, you can rewild your own little corner of the planet. Be inspired to take action by the Butterfly Brothers and discover the beauty and rewards of sharing your space with nature.
