Illustrated by Pat Stephens; published by Kids Can Press
The forest is home to amazing animals whose bodies are built for living among the trees in cold weather. Black bears, wolverines, loons and other animals all have special ways of keeping warm, finding food and raising their young in a forest habitat with lakes and rivers, short summers and long winters.
• The snowshoe hare who runs as fast as a car on a city street
• The wolverine who can crush bones with its powerful jaws
• The wood frog whose body freezes like an ice cube in winter
Who Lives Here?
This series looks at animals in their natural habitats – rain forests, polar regions, deserts and wetlands – and explains how the body and habits of each animal are suited to the place it lives. Charming, realistic illustrations, playful language and intriguing facts make these books a perfect read for young children.
