Editorial Reviews

Review

. . . As in her previous titles, there is a nice balance between math and the animal information. . . . Dubin's paper-collage, colored-pencil and pastel artwork is filled with gorgeous textures that echo the natural world of the forest. . . . none can argue with the educational value, nor the fun what will she tackle next? --Kirkus Reviews (January 2012)

More About the Author

Marianne Berkes has spent much of her life as a teacher, children's theater director and children's librarian. She is listed in "Something About the Author," "Who's Who in American Education" and "Who's Who in America."

Marianne lives in Hobe Sound, Florida, where the cacophony of sounds she hears from the pond in back of her home served as the inspiration for her first book, "Marsh Music" published in 2000. She is a favorite presenter at schools and literary conferences, reading her award-winning books and talking about her publishing adventures.

Before moving to Florida over twenty years ago, Marianne was an early childhood educator in New York, and also directed children's theater. Music, theater and writing have been a constant in her life and she puts all this to good use in 15 award winning "interactive" children's picture books, with two more to be released in early 2014.

Format: Paperback
Do you know what baby opossums are called? Based on the rhythm of the folk song "Over in the Meadow," author Marianne Berkes's latest counting book in rhyme presents various forest animals and their offspring, from a mother beaver and her "little kit one" to a father red fox and his "little kits ten," including a shy mother `possum and "her little joeys three," all beautifully portrayed by Jull Dubin's cut-paper illustrations. In addition to the reinforcement of learning how to count, children are introduced to the different creatures and their babies. Following the tracks of these ten woodland animals, young readers will become acquainted with how to leap like a squirrel and dunk like a raccoon. And, of course, you know what the nine little skunk kits do, don't you?
To help make the book interactive, there is a hidden animal at each opening for youngsters to hunt and find. And to provide even more educational value, there are pages in the back with further information about the temperate forest ecosystem, the hidden animals, and the main animals pictured, along with tips from the author and the illustrator, and finally the complete song with both music and words. Over in the Forest will be a delight for young and not-so-young nature lovers. Other Dawn Publications books in the "Over" series by Berkes include Over in Australia: Amazing Animals Down Under; Over in the Jungle: A Rainforest Rhyme; Over in the Ocean: In a Coral Reef, all three of which I have previously reviewed; and Over in the Arctic: Where the Cold Winds Blow.

Marianne's book allows children to move from passive to active learning as they count and sing and share in the excitement of each new forest animal discovery. Young readers will be delighted with every turn of the page.

Marianne and Jill have created another outstanding book for young children. Counting, rhyming, searching for hidden animals are a terrific way for children to learn about familiar and not-so-familiar forest animals. What a delight to share with boys and girls!

This is my third book by Berkes. I got the jungle one for my oldest, ocean for my middle, and forest for my youngest boy. Their nursery's were designed with a jungle, ocean, and forest theme so naturally they each needed a corresponding counting book. The illustrations are beautiful and my boys love the rhymes. Great books.

These are great in my music classroom. Familiar melody and add a lot of good rich vocabulary. I love that it is a simple structure with a higher vocabulary and reading level. GREAT for those second graders I have with a higher reading level.

Text was so small I couldn't read it on my Smart Board at school, or my computer, or any device but my Kindle. I use the eBooks on my Smart Board most of the time. This did not allow me to enlarge the text, so that I could read it. Most eBooks have been good,
not this one. I would really like to return it if I could because it is unreadable on the cloud reader. Two thumbs down on this purchase. :(

I really love reading it... the boys are less enthused (ages 3 and 5). Hoping they'll get into it more... illustrations are lovely.
