From the Back Cover:

"Bound to excite would-be scientists and browsers alike."­­ALA Booklist

"The woods are lovely, dark, and deep," wrote the poet Robert Frost. The woods are still alive with mysteries waiting to be solved, with clues ready to be brought to light. What causes the leaves to fall? Why does the chirpy chipmunk need so many nuts? How can a "twig" walk? Or a deer "freeze"? With a little detective work and some simple equipment, you can begin to uncover the secret life of the woods, plunging deeper and deeper­­without getting lost­­one small square at a time. Woods is just one of the exciting vibrantly illustrated volumes in the critically acclaimed One Small Square series of science and nature books for children ages 6-9.

Each book includes:

  • Stunning full-color illustrations of each habitat and its creatures
  • Motivating experiments and activities, along with clear, diagrammed instructions and safety tips
  • A picture field guide to the habitat
  • A glossary-index and resource list

One Small Square­­an eye-opening series­­puts the whole world in perspective for children, one small square at a time. Each book is a thrilling, up-close encounter with mammals, insects, plants, birds, fish, amphibians, bacteria, and the ecosystems in which they live.

"Science education at its best."­­Science Books and Films
