A Day in a Forested Wetland

We rated this book:


A forested wetland is a special place, sometimes occurring naturally and sometimes created by beavers and their prowess at building dams. Author Kevin Kurtz gives young readers a glimpse of life in a forested wetland, moving through a period of twenty-four hours. There seem to be as many creatures active during nighttime hours as there are during the day. Each spread in the book introduces a creature along with where it lives or how it finds its food or how it protects itself from predators or how it moves around its environment. All is told through text that uses rhymes or near-rhymes in a fairly consistent rhythm. The most compelling thing about the book, though, is the illustrations that fill every page with realistic pictures and lots of beautiful details. Illustrator Sherry Neidigh has clearly done her homework and exhibits her love of the subject matter. Youngsters will want to spend a lot of time searching the pages for all that Neidigh has packed into her drawings. The soft colors portray this quiet place perfectly. Four pages in the back have educational games and information for use in the classroom. Kids will love this.
