Editorial Reviews

Review

Field trip! What excitement for children to anticipate new discoveries in nature and have fun while learning. Author Anthony D. Fredericks creates enchanting rhythms and rhymes accompanied by Jennifer DiRubbios realistic, sometimes larger-than- life paintings and spreads in this remarkable guide, Around One Log: Chipmunks, Spiders, and Creepy Insiders. The result is an intriguing, yet accessible way to learn about nature s cycles, decomposition, and the reemergence of new life. . . . The final section of this marvelous book, a field trip taken indoors, is a section titled Activities, Projects, and Lots of Cool Ideas! These suggestions will provide still more enjoyable occupation around one log. The book is described as juvenile literature, but adults will also be enamored of its timeless message of ecology. --ForeWord Reviews (March 2011)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful book with great detail in the pictures. The author helps us understand part of the world that we often ignore or miss...and students LOVE to explore this subject. This is a must have for first-grade teachers! Great book!

Format: Paperback
If a tree falls down in the forest and nobody is around to hear it, does it just become a dead log? No, it becomes home to many different creatures! After an opening letter by "Your balled-up buddy, Roly-poly," author Anthony D. Fredericks uses catchy rhymes to describe a great oak tree that is hit by lightning and blown down by the wind, and then after it begins to decay the termites that feed on the rotting wood, a salamander that hides under it, the roly-polies that live in it, the garter snake that slides over it, the red velvet mites that crawl on it, the daddy longlegs that creep around it, and the chipmunk that climbs it. What will the school class see when they walk past the log on a field trip?
The full color, life-like drawings by illustrator Jennifer DiRubbio help to reinforce the many valuable lessons about nature that children can glean from the book which, in addition to the information about the different creatures, include the concept of habitat, the interconnected relationships of different plants and animals, and the earth's way of recycling. The repetitive character of the poetry will be encouraging to beginning readers. At the end, there are two pages of field notes about the tree and animals, and two more pages with suggestions for activities and projects. Similar books by Fredericks are Under One Rock, which I have read and reviewed, In One Tidepool, Around One Cactus, Near One Cattail, and On One Flower. As our friend the roly-poly reminds us in his introduction, "I have lots of weird neighbors, and remember, weird is interesting." This entire book is interesting!
