About the Book
Wake Up, Woods showcases the splendor of the eastern North American woodlands through true-to-life illustrations that depict plants, such as green dragon and bloodroot, along with the insects, birds and mammals that have specialized roles in the plant’s reproduction.
Through Wake Up, Woods, children (and adults) learn what to watch for in the deciduous forests within our parks and preserves—and even in shade gardens around our homes. This book celebrates some of nature’s most fascinating moments in forests where we live and play and hike.
Target audience for this book is children ages 5–10. Older children and adults will also enjoy the lush illustrations in this book as well as using it to discover these plants growing outside. Younger children may enjoy the pictures along with the rhyming verses before they grow old enough to appreciate the factual content.
