About the Author:

Rebecca L. Johnson has written dozens of national award-winning books that highlight why science is such an exciting endeavor: there are no shortages of new species, remarkable adaptations, and fresh insights into life on earth. She believes that scientists have the world's best jobs, and has been fortunate to work with many of them in far-flung corners of the planet, including Antarctica's frozen interior and the ocean's abyss.

"Through my writing, I hope to show young people that the world is full of wonders, and that science is the path that leads to them."

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2-5-A fine overview of the plant and animal life of the boreal forest. A map of North America early in the book delineates the location of this biome, which stretches across much of Canada and dips into limited areas of the northern United States. Johnson explains the interrelated nature of life in any biome and introduces a variety of birds and other animals that live together in this one. Excellent full-color photographs capture the beauty of the huge spruce, pine, and other trees as well as smaller plants. Close-ups of animals from tiny deer mice to the rapacious wolverine accompany brief introductions to many forest inhabitants. The author also discusses the climate, particularly how various animals deal with the lengthy winter. Fact boxes with sketches are well placed and do not detract from the book's pleasing arrangement of text and visual information. A well-crafted introduction to an area little explored in children's books.-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato
