The first six of these are rhyming riddles, with the word ‘tree’ completing the rhyme of the sixth, while the seventh is a one line riddle that also contains a rhyme.
The eighth of these riddles asks your children What Am I? To use that one, read the first line to your kids and have them take a guess at what they think the answer might be. As the clue is that it’s something that can be chopped but which isn’t a carrot, they might guess that it’s a potato, an apple or an onion.
If they don’t guess that a tree is the answer, read them the clue that’s on the second line and have them take another guess now that they have some extra information. Keep doing this until your kids either guess that the answer is a tree or they run out of clues.

Every year as it grows
It gains an extra ring
