DISCOVER MY WORLD: FOREST

By Ron Hirschi (Author) , Barbara Bash (Illustrator)

Age Range: 3 - 8

Pub Date: Sept. 1st, 1991
ISBN: 0-553-07469-5
Publisher: Bantam

 Ten woodland species that share one habitat are introduced in a simple text couched as a series of questions, accompanied by watercolor illustrations that strike a nice balance between representation accurate enough for identification and a touch of sentimentality for popular appeal (e.g., the rabbit and the fawn). Identifications (not always specific: which tree/woodpecker/butterfly?) are given at the end, where a bit more information is also included. An attractive corollary to the many pet and farm animal books. A companion volume presents creatures of the ocean. (Nonfiction/Picture book. 3-8)
