Cheerup, cheerup! call the robins. Morning is here!
Are you ready to scamper through the day alongside rabbits and squirrels? Prowl through the night alongside bears and raccoons? Come spend a day and night in a North American deciduous forest. The clock is ticking … Time to look, listen, and learn!
Every day and every night animals are busy in the forest. They find food, water and safe places to rest. They have everything they need.
A DAY AND NIGHT IN THE FOREST follows a 24 hour cycle of activity, highlighting the role of each animal in its habitat and how the habitat supports a variety of life. The illustrations progress from daylight to darkness to daylight again, visually supporting the progression of activity through the day and night. This book can be read aloud to younger children or an older child can read it alone.
Sidebars on each page spread expand information in the text. Back matter includes a map of deciduous forests of the world, fun facts, a glossary and index, and a guide to websites appropriate for the age group.
A DAY AND NIGHT IN THE FOREST is one of four books in my new series Caroline Arnold’s Habitats. It is available in both a hardcover library binding and in a paperback edition.
