What Can Live in a Forest?by Sheila Anderson
Find out why the forest is a perfect habitat for animals like porcupines, bears, and deer.
Children's Literature - Eleanor HeldrichThis is a First Step nonfiction book for early readers, part of a series about animal adaptability. It is small, and filled with attractive photographs of plants and animals that flourish in forests. The words are few and simple. The first page shows a thick green forest and the text says, "A forest is a habitat." The opposite page reads, "It's where plants and animals live," and the picture shows an adult and an immature wolf standing on a large rock surrounded by greenery. In the pages that follow, the author explains why plants and animals are compatible. Birds and animals are pictured and the unique qualities that make them suitable for forest life are described. Birds have strong bills to open nuts and catch insects. Porcupines and squirrels can climb trees. Insects that look like sticks are hard to find. The last few pages provide some Fun Facts and offer a simple glossary and index. Reviewer: Eleanor Heldrich
