THE FOREST IN THE TREES
What's in the tops of Earth's tallest trees?
Few human eyes ever see the world within a world of the majestic coast redwoods—a green ocean filled with plants and animals living on branches hundreds of feet above the ground. "The Forest in the Trees" introduces this hidden canopy habitat, home to other species of trees and shrubs, fern mats “soggy and heavy,” Humboldt flying squirrels, and sow bugs and pill bugs, “the only crustaceans that live on land.”
Informative sidebars accompany a cumulative verse, and vibrant illustrations highlight the redwoods’ immensity and teeming canopy life.
