How are worms helping the forest trees obtain water? Who is munching on the colorful fungus that's growing from a tree trunk? Which neighborhood residents will soon become dinner for the family of hungry woodpecker chicks? And what tiny creatures on the forest floor will feed on the red, orange, and yellow leaves that fall from the trees in autumn? Readers will discover how living things depend on each other and their environment for survival. Packed with facts, core-curriculum information, and fantastic photographs that support the text, each book takes readers on a mini safari through a habitat. Like piecing together a jigsaw puzzle, readers will discover connections and interactions between the plants, animals, and other living things that make each natural neighborhood their home.

Booklist Review for Welcome to the Forest

In this entry in the Nature’s Neighborhoods: All about Ecosystems series, close-up photographs of fly larvae, acorns in the midst of sprouting, curious raccoons, and pine cones greet readers. Keeping the focus solidly on a deciduous, temperate forest, the splashy page layouts help young ones answer questions such as “Which animals live in a forest?” “What do they eat?” and “How do they survive?” In this compact but fact-filled offering, young ecologists learn about the flora, fauna, and fungi that inhabit the forest and how all of these work together to make one ecosystem. Sentences are short, with bold-faced vocabulary words defined in a glossary, and text bubbles add additional information. Full-page color photographs are accentuated by labels pointing out different parts of each plant and creature. A food web that helpfully includes most of the creatures, big and small, mentioned in the book, a glossary, and an index make up the back matter. For those who prefer their ecosystems up close and personal, this is a good pick.
