Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
If you have ever wanted a great nature book for children, this is it. It is filled with beautiful, vivid color photos of our favorite furry animals portrayed in their natural habitat, scurrying, feeding, and nesting. Also, it is two books in one. Forest Bright features diurnal animals such as deer leaping, bear cubs playing, squirrels dashing about, bees buzzing, and snakes slithering around the trees and grass. While these animals are wandering about, their nocturnal counterparts nest inside the trees and logs on which they are playing. Turn the book over for Forest Night, and you will see these night-seeking animals, such as frogs flopping, beavers swimming, salamanders sliding under rocks, and skunks ambling under the moonlight while their daytime counterparts sleep and hide from prey. Bright colors adorn each page, and rhyming sentences complete this entrancing book, bringing the animals to life. Any child will feel as if he is in the forest with the animals, watching them in their natural habitat. This book would be an excellent addition to the elementary science curriculum. 2005, Dawn Publications, Ages 3 to 8.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Using a rhythmic text and a turn-it-over format, this offering explores the concept that some forest animals are diurnal while others are nocturnal. The details of the lush, almost surreal, illustrations realistically convey the creatures' appearances and activities. The imaginative interpretation of the landscape and its inhabitants offers youngsters an unusual perspective of forest life. During daylight hours, they can observe deer splashing through a stream while an owl dozes in a nearby tree, snakes staring at sleeping foxes, and blue jays squawking as skunks snooze in a hollow log. After turning the book over to the "forest night," readers see the deer bedded down while the owl searches for food, the foxes on the prowl as the snakes rest in a tangled bunch, and the skunks scurrying about while a jay sleeps with its head tucked beneath its wing. The strong artwork will hold children's interest as they search for all of the hidden animals. A fun introduction to nature.-Pamela K.

    A must have for every child's library

    I first heard about this book while at a workshop focused on incorporating the outdoors into the preschool curriculum. After reading this story, I just had to have it in our school library. The pictures are bright and colorful. The images are captivating.

    Each page of the story contains rhyming words. Each page also relates to a specific number. For each page you will find the number hidden in the picture as well as that number of animals. It is a great cross curricular-book for any child regardless of how old they are.
