Children's Literature
What would you expect to see, hear, or smell while walking through the woods during any one of the four seasons of the year? This book gives children insight into the answer to this question. Sights and sounds are described from the variety of forests of North America, from the coastal forests of the Pacific Northwest to the pine forests of the Southeast. Spring brings birds building nests and flowers blooming. Black bears and grizzly bears and the small pikas share the western forests in summer. Colorful photographs of birds and berries illustrate descriptions of the variety of species found. Caterpillars and multicolored leaves can be found in eastern autumn. There are plants to touch and plants not to touch. Some animals slow their activities almost to a halt in winter through hibernations, while others continue a relentless search for scarce food. The book is a wealth of information to help children and parents explore the forests. From summer's bugs and babies to winter's peace and quiet, there are interesting facts waiting for discovery. Parents will enjoy exploring the woods with their children using this book as a guide. 2003, Storey Kids/Storey Publishing, Ages 8 to 12.
