CDN$ 9.95

Ancient Forests untangles the complexity of old-growth forests. Termites, slime molds, owls and flying squirrels seem more like neighbours, thanks to the activities in this engaging, scientifically accurate book, which helps children see the interconnections between nature and people. Winner of a MAPA Award–Honorable Mention for editing.

  • Explore forest neighbourhoods
  • Take a forest trek to patches of ancient forest across North America
  • Be a science detective and solve some forest mysteries
  • Create a forest mobile
  • Survive a season as a spotted owl . . . if you can!

"Rarely is the ecology of ancient forests made so understandable and enjoyable for kids. The interactive components are fun and effective."—Gerald Bishop, Editor, Ranger Rick magazine
