“Filled with poetic language and beautiful illustrations.”
“It introduces children to all the living things (insects, animals, plants) that are in the forest.”
“This book ends with facts about forests and with ideas (from children) on how to protect the forests. It is educational and entertaining.”
“I am so impressed by this book”
“Unique and beautiful–the language, the rhyming and all the facts about the trees, animals and insects in the forest.”
” The illustrations are really amazing and I really am impressed with the rhythm of the book. It is a beautiful and amazing book.”
“I like this book very much.”
“A wonderful combination of rhyming nonfiction text and intriguing illustrations.”
“I love that it celebrates nature and invites readers to enjoy and explore a forest and see what they can see. Children can make the book their own by drawing in their copy.”
“I like the double-page spread of ideas by kids on how they can protect forests and would prompt kids, I think, to come up with their ideas. I also like the Did You Know? spread that presents some forest facts.”
“Lovely book that promotes human and forest connections.”
