Nice surprise in this morning’s email – a Twitter announcement of a storytime for my new book Up! Up! Up! Skyscraper at the New York Public Library. 🙂

Forest Communities

Forest Communities
by The Whizpops (Author) and Glory Lawson (Illustrator)

Booktalk: Many forest communities in the West need fire to maintain a healthy ecosytem. Three forest types (ponderosa pine, lodgepole pine, and white-barked pine) benefit from the occasional wild fire. Natural history notes accompany the song lyrics and explain such topics as how trees survive fire, how soil exposed by fire provides an ideal place for seedlings to grow, and how fire releases seeds from resin-sealed pine cones.

Snippet:

Thick bark, big trunk
branches reaching high . . .

I must be standing with
the ponderosa pine!
