Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This is a recent addition to the captivating series of books called "The Natural World." The focus in this case is on the forests. What makes it so interesting is how it encompasses not just the world's temperate and coniferous forests, but all of nature that lives and is impacted on by these trees. It reads like a fascinating game of woodlands Trivial Pursuit. Did you know that the cones of some conifer trees, like the giant Redwoods, only release their seeds during the heat of a forest fire? Did you know that the drumming noise of the woodpecker proclaims its territory and attracts a mate? The book uses maps, illustrations, remarkable photographs and sidebars that are all packed with facts both in words and pictures. It will serve as a quick reference book for early middle schoolers. More likely, it will generate further interest in the natural world that holds fascination for us all. 2000, Barron's Educational Series Inc., $5.95. Ages 10 to 13. Reviewer: Kathleen Orosz
