Boreal Forest (The): A Year in the World's Largest Land Biome
The vast boreal forest spans a dozen countries in the northern regions like “a scarf around the neck of the world,” making it the planet’s largest land biome. Besides providing homes for a diversity of species, this spectacular forest is also vitally important to the planet: its trees clean our air, its wetlands clean our water and its existence plays an important role in slowing global climate change. Combining lyrical storytelling with expertly researched informational text, The Boreal Forest provides a year-long tour of the planet’s largest land biome – one of our most important wildernesses. Award-winning author L. E. Carmichael explores this special wilderness on a tour of the forest throughout the four seasons, from one country to another. Evocative watercolor and collage artwork by award-winning illustrator Josée Bisaillon provides a rare glimpse of one of the world’s most magnificent places. With excellent STEM applications in earth and life science, this book is recommended for ages 8 to 12.
