School of the Woods
Through vivid depictions of the habits of many woodland animals, the author, William J. Long, shares his remarkable knowledge and understanding of creatures small and big ... from the lowly toad, to the "big prowler in the black coat - the bear ... giving them personalities children can easily understand.
It is perhaps the best tribute to Long's works that those who have camped in the wilderness and who know something of the wood folk are most enthusiastic in their praise. Here is a great introduction and enticement to children to learn about the wood folk, grow to love them and desire to watch and understand them better. Ages 10+364 pp, soft cover
