Life in the Boreal Forest by Brenda Z. Guiberson


Life in the Boreal Forest by Brenda Z. Guiberson

I had never heard the phrase, “boreal forest.” After reading this book, I’ve learned it refers to the large expanses of forest that spread widely across the northern part of the world.

The pictures beautifully depict those who live in the forest. The text pops and crackles with onomatopoeia. The words and pictures combine to present a clear picture of this enormous forested land.

A bit:
“Grrowll! The bear needs a five-inch layer of body fat to survive a long winter sleep. In one frenzied day he gobbles 70,000 berries. His droppings spread seeds that grow into new bushes.”

Children’s comments:
The children who looked through this book liked the pictures and the text.
