I really enjoyed this book for many reasons. The book took a personal journal type format which allows the reader to relate to the experience of visiting a forest. The book included detailed illustrations to further relate to the reader the experience of hiking in the woods. The book was also very informative about the nature and ecology of the northwestern temperate rainforests. The scope is fairly focused on a particular ecosystem and for a book probably meant for middle schoolers, the depth of information is considerable. The information is presented in a narrative format describing the protagonists outing into the forest of Washington. The book also includes elements of reference books or field guides on the subject in the form of excerpts. One thing that could have benefited may have been photographs in addition to the wonderful illustrations, but overall this was a great book. ( )
