Ellie's Log - Exploring the Forest Where the Great Tree Fell

Judith L. Li

Categories: Conservation & Natural Resources , Forestry , Science

Resource Description

After a huge tree crashes to the ground during a winter storm, ten-year-old Ellie and her new friend, Ricky, explore the forest where Ellie lives. Together, they learn how trees provide habitat for plants and animals high in the forest canopy, down among mossy old logs, and deep in the pools of a stream. The plants, insects, birds, and mammals they discover come to life in colored pen-and-ink drawings.
