PreSchool-Grade 3-Three young adventurers explore different types of forests in this unique picture book. Their journey spans a variety of landscapes, as they hike through "autumn trees," "dark spruce trees," redwoods, gum trees, desert pi-ons, a jungle, a mangrove swamp, an apple orchard, maple trees, and a snow-covered woodland. Each habitat is featured on a spread, and the design facilitates the question-and-answer format. "And what will we see/In the trees, we three," prompts the refrain, and readers lift the flap to find two animals that live in that environment. The concept is handled well, with the forests shown by type of tree rather than by location. The rhythm of the rhyming text never falters, and LaFave's bright cartoon artwork, highlighted with heavy black lines, captures the palette of each locale, clearly showing the features of the flora and fauna while maintaining a lighthearted appeal. Use this book to supplement science or geography lessons, or to introduce basic ecology.
