Wham! Bam! What’s that falling from the trees? Acorns. And cones. Oh, that’s why! There’s a squirrel up there, jumping from tree to tree, hiding in the branches, knocking things down. The little scamp! Open the book and take a look at this cute acrobat and her friends in the woods. Find out how nature changes through all four seasons — in spring, summer, autumn and winter. You will find out what grows and flowers and when, how the animals behave, the identity of a most mysterious inhabitant of the woods and rocks, what the marten does after dark, and why snakes stick out their tongues. With this book you can look inside a tree trunk and deep underground. You’ll discover what a woodpecker’s home looks like, what fox cubs play with in their dens and why the squirrel hides its nuts. You’ll learn to distinguish animals by their tracks and trees by their leaves. Besides all this, you can make your own herbarium and a periscope so you can watch animals in the wild from a spring-time hiding place – you’ll find the instructions inside. So what are you waiting for? Off to the woods in search of adventure!
