Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Children's Literature

You can easily find answers here, whether it is information on different types of forests and trees or the critters that call them home or man's interaction with these habitats.

Children's Literature
Do hummingbirds hum? Where do chewing gum trees grow? Why do reindeer shovel snow? You have just read part of the table of contents of this book about forests. Posing the topics as questions should encourage readers to turn to the appropriate pages to find the answers—I know that is the effect it had on me! And you can easily find answers here, whether it is information on different types of forests and trees or the critters that call them home or man's interaction with these habitats. Each two-page spread is about half text and half illustrations. The text is mainly set up as questions and answers. One two-page spread is devoted to a world map locating different types of forests (tropical rain, tropical dry, temperate broad-leaves and mixed, temperate conifer, northern conifer, and broad-leaved forest & open woodland). Thirty-two pages include a table of contents and an index. This is a paperback version of the 1997 hardback book by the same name. The "I Wonder Why" series includes over 30 titles such as Camels Have Humps and Other Questions About Animals, I Blink and Other Questions About My Body, and Stars Twinkle and Other Questions About Space. 2005, Houghton Mifflin/Kingfisher, Ages 7 to 11.
