Forest Has a Song

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Robbin Gourley. These poems celebrate forests throughout the seasons, each one observing a different woodsy subject with an original twist: snow footprints are the "Forest News" ("Articles are printed / by critters on the go"); moss is "an emerald carpet"; even poison ivy is given attention ("One green / touch can itch / so much"). The watercolor illustrations reflect the thoughtful simplicity of the verse.
