Sticking with our learning about Woodland and Forest Animals I have created a list of 10 books for preschoolers. These books look so cute and inviting that I am sure your child will enjoy reading them and learning all about animals they might not know much about from the woodland and forest! I have linked to Amazon using my affiliate links to make finding these books easier.
In My Forest (In My… (Chronicle))
Turn the colorful die-cut pages of this irresistible board book to discover just what makes little deer’s forest so cozy. Is it the fluffy snow? No, it’s their loving families! Bright pictures, sweet reassuring messages, unique layered pages, and an adorable finger puppet combine to create interactive reading and playtime fun!
Baby Animals In the Forest
The forest is full of baby wildlife from the spotted faun, to the tiny bunnies, the tinier mouse, and the black bear cub up the tree. Also included are some less familiar babies like the fox cub, the boar, and the red squirrel. Each page of Baby Animals In the Forest by the editors at Kingfisher includes one fascinating fact to help young children learn more about each woodland friend.
Night-Night, Forest Friends
As the sun sets, animals all over the forest get ready for bed. Papa rabbit tucks his babies in among the leaves, fuzzy bears settle in their den, and little foxes snuggle together under the moonlight. Up above, an owl hoots a lullaby. The gentle rhyming text and soft illustrations in this charming book will help little ones settle down for a cozy night.
Woodland Adventure (Animal Dioramas)
This eye-catching little picture book entertains toddlers by presenting 3-D-style layered illustrations on thick, board pages. A cutout section extends through the book from front to back covers. It contains a charming picture of the story’s characters inside a clear vinyl double window. The book’s engaging little animal story is for Mom or Dad to read aloud to their little one. Who are the other animals Bunny meets when he sets out on his adventure in the woods?
Who Lives Here? Forest Animals
The forest is home to amazing animals whose bodies are built for living among the trees in cold weather. Black bears, wolverines, loons and other animals all have special ways of keeping warm, finding food and raising their young in a forest habitat with lakes and rivers, short summers and long winters. The Who Lives Here? series looks at animals in their natural habitats — such as tropical and boreal forests, polar regions, deserts and wetlands — and explains how the body and habits of each animal are suited to the place it lives. Charming, realistic illustrations, playful language and intriguing facts make these books a perfect read for young children.
Over in the Forest: Come and Take a Peek
Jump like a squirrel, dunk like a raccoon, and . . . uh-oh . . . watch out for the skunk! Children learn the ways of forest animals to the rhythm of Over in the Meadow in this delightful introduction to the woodland habitat. They will also count the babies and search for hidden animals. And when they see how each illustration is made from cut paper, they may be inspired to try cut-paper art, too.
The Busy Tree
Spectacular illustrations rendered in oil paint, and a rhyming text that describes a tree’s activities from its roots to its branches, introduce young readers to the amazing activities that go on in a tree. Acorns nibbled by chipmunks, ants scurrying across a trunk, a spider spinning a web, leaves “breathing out air for all to breathe in”—everything adds up to a “busy tree” for all to “come and see.”
Forest Bright, Forest Night
Someone is always awake in the forest–and someone else is always asleep! Some animals are alert in daytime and sleep at night. Others are alert at night, and are sleepyheads during the day. Plus be sure to count the animals.You FLIP THIS BOOK from day to night and back–a nice hands-on way to show the same view day and night. Teachers: this book is a very pleasant way to combine science and literature.
Please note: The board book edition is 28 pages. Unlike the paperback and hardback editions, it is not a flip-book, nor does it contain additional centerfold information about the animals.
