Forestry examines all aspects of the industry, from the planting of new seedlings to the inner workings of a sawmill and a pulp and paper mill. This engaging picture book uses a combination of fact and fiction to introduce young children to the people, machines and environmental concerns involved in one of America's most important resource-based industries. The America at Work series fills a need for primary-level information on natural resources, and Forestry helps children appreciate the work involved in bringing forestry products to their homes.

About the Author:

Jane Drake, with her co-author and sister Ann Love, has co-authored many award-winning non fiction books for kids including The Kids Book of the Night Sky, The Kids Book of the Far North, The Kids Cottage Book, and most recently, Alien Invaders: Species that Threaten Our World. Their works usually have an environmental flavor. Jane lives in Toronto.

Review:

When possible, the authors explain the necessity for alternative and less intrusive methods. Care for the environment is stressed as the primary concern, but Drake and Love address both sides of the issue.

An interesting and thorough introduction to the subject.
