Someone is always awake in the forest--and someone else is always asleep! Some animals are alert in daytime and sleep at night. Others are alert at night, and are sleepyheads during the day. Plus be sure to count the animals.You FLIP THIS BOOK from day to night and back--a nice hands-on way to show the same view day and night. Teachers: this book is a very pleasant way to combine science and literature.
Please note: The board book edition is 28 pages. Unlike the paperback and hardback editions, it is not a flip-book, nor does it contain additional centerfold information about the animals.

Review:

"If you have ever wanted a great nature book for children, this is it..." -- Children's Literature, May 2005

Winner of the 2006 Learning Magazine Teacher's Choice Award for Best Children's Book --

Jennifer Ward and Jamichael Henterly team up to provide two poetry books in one with Forest Bright, Forest Night. Ward s rhyming text takes kids through a day in the woods when "deer splash" and "bear cubs tumble," while Henterly s pictures show their actions as well as the shut-eyed, curled-up stance of a snoozing owl, porcupine and other nocturnal animals. Midway, the "Forest Bright" section ends, and readers can turn the book upside down to discover what those day-dozing animals actually do at night. While the deer and bear cubs sleep, the wide-eyed owl searches for dinner and the porcupines climb moonlit logs. Budding naturalists will love returning often to this book for its intriguing design, specificity to day-and-night behavior and detailed illustrations, which convey the beauty of flora and fauna without sentimentalizing Nature. A wonderful read-aloud for Earth Day on April 22. --Mary Quattlebaum, Washington Parent
Debbie West, Children's Literature
If you have ever wanted a great nature book for children, this is it. It is filled with beautiful, vivid color photos of our favorite furry animals portrayed in their natural habitat, scurrying, feeding, and nesting. Also, it is two books in one. Forest Bright features diurnal animals such as deer leaping, bear cubs playing, squirrels dashing about, bees buzzing, and snakes slithering around the trees and grass. While these animals are wandering about, their nocturnal counterparts nest inside the trees and logs on which they are playing. Turn the book over for Forest Night, and you will see these night-seeking animals, such as frogs flopping, beavers swimming, salamanders sliding under rocks, and skunks ambling under the moonlight while their daytime counterparts sleep and hide from prey. Bright colors adorn each page, and rhyming sentences complete this entrancing book, bringing the animals to life. Any child will feel as if he is in the forest with the animals, watching them in their natural habitat. This book would be an excellent addition to the elementary science curriculum. --Debbie West, Children's Literature

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3–Using a rhythmic text and a turn-it-over format, this offering explores the concept that some forest animals are diurnal while others are nocturnal. The details of the lush, almost surreal, illustrations realistically convey the creatures' appearances and activities. The imaginative interpretation of the landscape and its inhabitants offers youngsters an unusual perspective of forest life. During daylight hours, they can observe deer splashing through a stream while an owl dozes in a nearby tree, snakes staring at sleeping foxes, and blue jays squawking as skunks snooze in a hollow log. After turning the book over to the forest night, readers see the deer bedded down while the owl searches for food, the foxes on the prowl as the snakes rest in a tangled bunch, and the skunks scurrying about while a jay sleeps with its head tucked beneath its wing. The strong artwork will hold children's interest as they search for all of the hidden animals. A fun introduction to nature.–Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA
