‘Let’s Discover’ is a new booklet by The Friends of Richmond Park in consultation with children and teachers. Written for children age 7-11, our booklet enables children to identify the four trees that account for 70% of all the trees in the Park.
But identifying trees is just the beginning – the 16 pages allow children to develop their keen sense of observation. They can discover what lives in and around the trees; work out how old and how tall a tree is and how far its roots reach out; look at the trees’ bark structure and colour; and learn about the existence of fungi, mosses and lichens.
Their exploration is made all the more fun thanks to colourful illustrations and Olly the little owl who is hiding on every page.
