There are so many kinds of forests around the world. A few giant steps outside my back door there’s a temperate forest filled with a mix of hardwoods and softwoods: maple, oak, beech, hickory, hemlock, red pine, white pine, fir… and somewhere a blue spruce that the kids planted ages ago, if it survived the deer browsing.
Now you can explore forest habitats from around the world by delving into the pages of this book by the wonderful team of Cathryn and John Sill. Part of the About Habitats series, this book takes readers into boreal forests, rainforests, and dry forests. Each spread features a forest, and there’s lots of great notes at the back for curious kids (and parents) who want to know more. You can read more at Archimedes Notebook.
