Kindergarten Books About Trees and Fruit

A sign of a thriving tree, fruit is what a tree naturally produces when it's healthy enough to give and make more of itself. The Tree & Fruit Compass Box leads little learners in their discovery of how trees are built, how they grow, and how their  fruit carries seeds that sprout into more trees of its kind, if they too are rooted in good ground and growing conditions.

Each of our unit studies is accompanied by a curated reading list with the aim to grow knowledge, spark curiosity, and nurture recognition and connection with God through the things He's made. These books are just a few of our favorites for our Reaping Series studies.
