About this book

Forest: A See to Learn Book

A See to Learn Book

See to Learn: Book 1

Kate Moss Gamblin • Karen Patkau

Forest: A See to Learn Book is the first book in a series of non-fiction picture books for very young children, using lyrical phrasing to encourage a sensitive perception of the natural world and a caring connection with it.

Through gentle questions, the text asks young readers to consider what they see and experience in the forest through the seasons — animal tracks, tiny creatures in the soil, birds soaring in the sky above, towering trees, shade and dappled sunlight — drawing local connections alongside those of a global sensibility.

Stunningly beautiful illustrations show a child and grownup exploring the forest, appreciating its beauty, learning its secrets and enjoying moments of wonder, all first steps toward developing a lifelong awareness of our interconnectedness to the Earth and our impact on the environment.
