Format: Paperback
This 55 page little book is absolutely fabulous for teaching kids (and their parents) about how a forest is created. An excellent job of showing how a forest is ever changing and what type of trees are shade tolerant, which trees show up first and which animals need which ecosystem. The black and white artwork is exact, gives a calming affect and keeps the eye looking for other critters. I'd recommend every teacher and school library to carry this book.

I love this book! It was used in a college science course to demonstrate how to use one's changing community to students. I have used this book more than once and loaned it to peers. We all love the simple story of how a forest begins and matures. It was also fun to research the place where our own community originated and how it has changed over time. We are blessed to be near a forest, so going to see the trees in a variety of stages ties the book directly to the content being taught.

We are using this book during Ecology Day Camp at the organization where I work. It is written in a way that is very understandable for children and the language and pictures are engaging. It does a very good job of helping children grasp the concept of succession and the broader idea of change in nature.
