A beautiful forest is in danger.
“This non-fiction book shows why the boreal forest . . . is as big and important as tropical rain forests.” —USA Today
The great northern forest—the boreal forest—is home to a unique ecosystem of animals and plants. It covers one-third of the earth's total forest area and is home to so many birds that it is known as "North America's bird nursery."
The forest is a treasure trove of riches, but it's threatened by increased human development and climate changes. This gorgeous book teaches readers about the boreal forest and reminds them that it's up to us to make sure the beauty and bounty survive.
Life in the Boreal Forest written by Brenda Z. Guiberson and illustrated by Gennady Spirin, is a beautiful book about conservation and nature.
