'The Last Tree' cover

The Last Tree by Mark Wilson

This picture book is about a beautiful old eucalyptus tree that grew tall and strong over many years. It was the centre of life in the forest and provided food and shelter for many forest dwellers. But what happens when the tree is threatened as the surrounding forest slowly disappears?

This text is a fantastic stimulus for teacher-led literacy tasks in the lead-up to their excursion.
