Celebrate our forests, which allow us to breathe oxygen-rich air, create diverse habitats for creatures, and grace us with their long-lived, quiet presence!
Here we feature three creative nonfiction books that explore temperate and tropical forests. Tall Tall Tree, The Tree in an Ancient Forest, and A Walk in the Rainforest are all 40% off for the month of April as part of our year-long 40th anniversary promotion.
Tall Tall Tree by Anthony Fredericks and illustrated by Chad Wallace explores the magical, wild happening in the tallest of tall trees – the redwood – a realm teeming with life that very few people ever see. Children will love the rhymes and count the critters from one to ten. The book also includes lots of STEM activity suggestions, while there are free lesson plans available on our website.
The Tree in the Ancient Forest by Carol Reed-Jones and illustrated by Christopher Canyon reveals how a three hundred-year-old Douglas Fir tree embraces a wonderful world of creatures, each playing their special role. From lowly fungi to majestic owls, the book connects the web of nature and aptly portrays the amazing ways in which the inhabitants of the forest depend upon one another for survival.
A Walk in the Rainforest written and illustrated by Kristin Joy-Pratt takes young readers on a tour of the rainforest and the alphabet, with fun alliterations about the amazing anteater, majestic macaw, quiet quetzal, and many more fascinating creatures.
Don’t miss out on our 40% off promotion on all three books, ending April 30th!
