Black Dog Books, 2018. ISBN 9781925381122
(Age: 4+) Recommended. This is the journey of a tree from seed to what the timber is made into.
A bird drops a seed, the seed starts to grow, the tree is cut down. The timber is taken to the city and then used to make beds on a convict ship, once the ship has finished its journey the timber is used again and again in different places, ending up carved into a bird. The very animal that started its journey in the first place.
This book can be used to discuss how things change with time, and how some things can be used over and over for different purposes. It can be linked to reusing items not throwing them away after just one use.
I recommend this book for 4+
