This engaging nature guide for kids aged 5-9, filled with full-color illustrations and fun facts about the natural wonders of the Pacific Northwest, encourages kids to discover and explore nature in their own backyards and beyond. Organized by habitat–forest, beaches, fresh water, and backyards/urban parks–this book will teach kids about some of the most intriguing flora, fauna, and natural phenomena of the region, while also teaching ecological lessons.
Fiona Cohen grew up in Victoria, Canada, where she developed a passion for nature, including birds, rocks, trees, and squishy things on the beach. She once sustained a black eye while fleeing from an enraged river otter. Cohen now lives in Seattle. She writes about education, outdoor sports, and science. She grows vegetables, hikes, camps, knits, and enjoys the theater. Other things she adores include complex board games, obscure musical instruments, and cheese.
