Forests fascinate readers and hikers alike. And the deciduous forest, perhaps the "classic" forest biome, fills our stories and is the go-to spot for many outdoor activities. This informative book describes the forest many think they know, presenting the abundant life within, including trees, animals, plants, and even moss. Readers will learn about its iconic four seasons, as well as why trees drop their leaves and change from green to the brilliant hues of autumn. Thought-provoking sidebars prompt further investigation.
