Gotta Love Those Trees!

Today (May 16) is Love a Tree Day.  Click that link (you just passed it back there) to see lots of great celebratory ideas.  At my Library, we like to celebrate such things by showing book trailers related to the central theme-of-the-day.  Like so:

MPL Book Trailer #149
The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss
(Audience:  Preschool to Adults)

MPL Book Trailer #150
Tree Girl, by T. A. Barron
(Audience:  Readers in Grades 4-6; Young Adults)

 MPL Book Trailer #138
A Girl of the Limberlost, by Gene Stratton-Porter
(Audience:  Readers in Grades 4-6; Young Adults)

MPL Book Trailer #52
The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett
(Audience:  Readers in Grades 4-6; Young Adults)

MPL Book Trailer #111
A Separate Peace, by John Knowles
(Audience:  Young Adults and older)

Each of these books features trees prominently in their stories.  Lots of other stuff goes on, of course, but trees do their part.  Here's another book with tree in the title, although it's a metaphor, mostly.

MPL Book Trailer #132
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, by Betty Smith
(Audience:  Young Adults & older)

We used to call young adults teens.  Times change, I guess.

Adult readers, too, would enjoy any of these books.  Check them out using your Evergreen Indiana library card.

I've posted reviews about each of these books, I'm pretty sure.  Just search my blog by their titles (in the blog search box in the upper left-hand corner of my blog page).

P.S.  "The Trees," by Rush, seems like an appropriate musical closer to include with this posting.  The song appeared on the LP Hemispheres (1978).

P.P.S.  The Mysterious Forest (2012) was written by our Library's composer.  The original version appears above, while the string quartet arrangement is below.  These, too, are available to check-out in our Evergreen Indiana online catalog.
