In the Woods

Mariona Tolosa Sisteré

A family adventure in the local woods teaches readers how to plan ahead and use their senses to respectfully uncover natural wonders

Every adventure starts with a plan! Check the weather, plot a course, and pack the appropriate items. As a family prepares for a local expedition, readers are invited to think about how factors like seasons, climate, and geography will impact their journey.

Once the adventure is underway, new surroundings provoke all kinds of questions and discoveries—especially if you use your senses! Why are some things more stinky than others? What do different noises mean, and where (or who!) do they come from? How does your presence impact the environment and the creatures in it? There’s so much to learn if you’re patient and attentive!

Colorful, energetic, and engaging illustrations bring the woods to life as readers are encouraged to activate their senses, explore safely, and respect their local environment on every adventure.
