Where Once There Was a Wood

Paperback (Square Fish April 1, 2000) , First Edition

A powerful poem and stunning, handmade-paper art encourage children to protect nature.

"Where once there was a wood,
A meadow and a creek . . . "

Inspired by events in her own backyard, award-winning author and illustrator Denise Fleming creates a poignant yet hopeful portrait of our disappearing natural environment. The last pages of the book teach children how to make a more "creature friendly" backyard, including information about what types of food, trees and flowers attract different kinds of animals. Where Once There Was a Wood also includes an informative bibliography for budding environmentalists, and suggests various projects that families can do together.
