Forest Neighbors

by Edith M. Patch

Description:  Immerse yourself in the north woods by becoming acquainted with two dozen of its residents, as you follow each in turn through a typical year. Along the way, you will encounter some familiar mammals such as chipmunk, beaver, and white-tailed deer, but also some harder to spot ones such as moose, lynx, and marten. Among the birds you will come to know chickadees, ruffed grouse, Canada jays, and great-horned owls that are year-round residents of the forest, as well as others that migrate every spring and fall, among them the loon and merganser that inhabit the ponds, and vireos, warblers, and thrushes that flit among the trees. Eighteen chapters of stories well-illustrated and delightfully told that bring the forest to life for readers of all ages.
