Autumn in the forest
Autumn in the Forest is one in a series of picture books for pre-K, K and early elementary kids about the natural world, in particular the deciduous forest of the American Northeast. This book depicts the windy changes in Autumn and preparations that plants and animals make in anticipation of winter. The language of our books is lyrical, the images are entrancing and sometimes humorous but always realistic - think field guides for 3 to 8 year-olds. There is a seed collecting activity in back for young readers.
Children will learn the names and habits of forest animals and plants so that they can recognize them in natural settings. These books engage children's innate curiosity and connection to the living world so that they can learn complex principals in simple, age-appropriate language.
"This book is spectacular. The books in the series are enchanting.
The illustrations are completely engaging and young-child friendly."
- David Sobel, Professor Emeritus
Antioch University New England
Autumn in the Forest consists of 12 full page spreads of vibrant watercolor images depicting changes in the Northeast deciduous forest during seasonal change in autumn. The images all contain plants and animals. The last two pages have information about seeds and a possible seed collecting activity for youngest children. These are field guides for little naturalists.
