you are looking for a good introduction to forests and the
types of trees, plants and animals you will find in this habitat,
I’d recommend this book. Not only is the difference
between deciduous and evergreen explained but you’ll
find representative leafs from some of the common trees such
as the oak, beech, chestnut and poplar.
Looking at the forest floor you’ll discover illustrations
of representative wildflowers ( foxglove, bluebells, wood
anemone, etc.) and other plants (fruits and mushrooms) plus
a sampling of insects. The authors also touch upon the way
forests protect mountains by holding down topsoil and blocking
avalanches during the winter.
This very sturdy book features transparent pages and a ring
binding which means it will stand up to hard use. This would
be an excellent way of introducing a study unit on trees or
the importance of forests.
