Lost in the Woods is a stunning picture book for children. It falls into both the fiction and non-fiction categories. The photographs are breathtaking. Even the most close-up photos are sharp and show incredible detail. You can see each drop of dew on the tiny caterpillar, and just how soft the young fawn's fur must be.
The story is sweet, at times funny, at times suspenseful, and sparks the imagination. There are so many nuances on each page that every time my daughter and I read this book, we talk about something new. The final page encourages children to go back through the book and find various creatures. Lost in the Woods is geared for ages 5 and up, but I think preschoolers will take delight in it, too.

My grandson loves learning to read and books! Combining his love of reading with my passion for experiencing, understanding, and caring for nature is exciting for both of us. The DVD reinforces the story book -- both became favorites. Exceptional for the early reader and/or endearing for the story reader.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I am 15 and When I saw this book at the mall I had to have it. I recently rasied and released two abandoned deer and have a racoon so the beautiful clear pics alone attracted me. Then I read the story. It is amazing. It is about waiting for your time to shine and listening to your parents to stay safe. A must for any parent or nature lover!Was this review helpful?

A semi-finalists in the 2005 Independent Publisher Book Awards! A newborn fawn lies by itself in the forest. Is it lost? Where is its mother? As the other woodland creatures ponder this mystery, they offer the newcomer many suggestions. But the fawn rejects them all, insisting that its mother will return. Things are not always what they seem, the tale tells us. Mother deer leave their newborns for days at a time to protect their young. Children are introduced to concepts such as camouflage, not to mention a broad range of young animals, from goslings to a hilarious young raccoon. Close-up photography of each animal is superb, and shots of the fawn make you want to reach out and touch its shining coat. The husband and wife team who created this book have been photographing wildlife together for years, and wanted to help others appreciate outdoor wonders. How fortunate for all readers who discover this remarkable offering! Those who enjoyed 'Woods' might also enjoy Ruby Lee the Bumble Bee: A Bee's Bit of Wisdom. It concerns a young girl in a bit of trouble who is aided by another of God's creatures: a wise and friendly bumble bee - an award finalist for the Benjamin Franklin Award which also recognizes excellence in independent publishing.Was this review helpful?
