Books are one of the many delightful ways to teach children about the importance of forests. Books with gorgeous visuals and poetry, such as those found in Forest, can be especially enthralling and engaging for children.  Forest begins with a view of the forest at a distance, then zooms in on its fascinating details, including the amazing trees, bright birds, adorable baby animals, and other wonders of nature that inhabit it. The rhythmic text and inviting watercolor illustrations allow curious young readers to observe, explore, and learn what makes forests so special and vitally important.
