Children's LiteratureWhat Are Forests? is a book for beginning readers. Forests are large areas covered with trees. Some forests receive lots of rain, other receive very little. Tropical rain forests get rain almost every day and they are in places that are warm all year. Temperate forests have trees with leaves that change color and fall off in the winter. Evergreen forests are in places where it is cold most of the time. The leaves on evergreen trees are called needles. Beautiful photographs illustrate the simple direct text. A map shows where the Redwood National Park is located in California, home of the tallest trees in the world. This book is part of the "Earth Features" series published to support the national science standards for information about landforms on Earth. Maps are used to support the geography standards. A glossary provides definitions for all subject-specific vocabulary. Internet links identify sites with relevant information for young students. 2003, Pebble Books, Ages 3 to 8.
