If every known species on Earth were a leaf on a tree, that tree would have 1 750 000 leaves. Since humans count for just one leaf on the tree, we have a lot to learn about the millions of other forms of life with which we share the world. A dazzlingly illustrated and child-friendly introduction to biodiversity, Tree of Life shows how living things are classified into five kingdoms --- and how each has much to tell us about all aspects of life on our planet. Tree of Life is part of CitizenKid: A collection of books that inform children about the world and inspire them to be better global citizens.

Rochelle Strauss is an environmental education consultant in Toronto. She has designed and developed education programs, as well as consulted on numerous environmental projects, including a biodiversity museum in Panama and a national park in Canada.

Margot Thompson is an illustrator of children’s books including the award-winning Tree of Life, Sea Monsters, Make a Change: Shapes, and Make a Change: Opposites. She also works as a designer at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.

Striking, lucid, and deceptively simple.—School Library Journal

Tree of Life is beautifully designed, and Thompson's realistic pictures bring the Earth's creatures vividly to life. ... some of the vocabulary will prove challenging for readers as young as eight. Older children will nevertheless find this a wonderfully helpful resource.—Quill & Quire

This introduction to the five kingdoms of living things does an excellent job of helping young readers understand how scientists organize and classify all living things. ... Large-sized, both handsome and useful, this is an outstanding collaboration of author and illustrator.—Kirkus Reviews
