Children's Literature - Joyce RiceA forest habitat is home to trees that reach to the sky and mosses that grow on the rocks at the floor of the forest. It is also home to many species of animals. Some forests are in parts of the world that are always hot or always cold. The forests described here are in locations that experience all four seasons. Animals and plants that live in these forest habitats must adapt to all kinds of weather, from hot summer days to winter days when snow covers the ground. Photographs throughout the brief text give young readers a glimpse into the kinds of creatures that live here and how they survive. Readers will learn about where an animal finds a home, how he finds food, and how the forest supplies that food. A single page index includes additional photographs and references to vocabulary words that have been in bold type. The series, "Introducing Habitats," includes twelve titles. This is an excellent series for science classrooms as well as media center collections. The text is simple, and the illustrations are bright and colorful. Young readers will be drawn to the book for its photographs and will be able to read most of the text without assistance.
