About this book

Twenty-six irresistible poems capture a girl's experiences in a forest throughout the year. She has a conversation with a chickadee, sees fiddleheads unfurl, finds a fossil, tells us what a young owl says to its mother and what a spring tree frog is saying ("Marry me. / Please marry me. . . . / Pick me now. / Make me your choice. / I'm one great frog / with one strong voice"). Short poems in a variety of forms, inviting and easy to read, present Amy VanDerwater's intimate and lighthearted observations of forest denizens, and Robbin Gourley's lush and graceful watercolors make the woodland setting glow from the page.
