A spider is a never-tangling dangling spinner / knitting angles, trapping dinner. A tree frog proposes, Marry me. Please marry me / Pick me now. / Make me your choice. / I m one great frog / with one strong voice. VanDerwater lets the denizens of the forest speak for themselves in twenty-six lighthearted, easy-to-read poems. As she observes, Silence in Forest / never lasts long. / Melody / is everywhere / mixing in / with piney air. / Forest has a song. The graceful, appealing watercolor illustrations perfectly suit these charming poems that invite young readers into the woodland world at every season.
