Summary
A young artist explores the urban forest near his home, art supplies in tow, interpreting what he sees in a variety of artistic media. He is a keen observer who uses poetic, rhythmic language to describe the diversity he finds all around him through the seasons - his forest is both 'fluffy' and 'prickly,' 'crispy' and 'soft.' He is inspired to make charcoal rubbings, rock art, sponge painting, and more, in order to explore and interpret the beauty around him. This is a book to inspire and delight, sure to awaken the nature artist in every child.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Colorful cut-paper collages adorned with watercolor, acrylic, and pencil crayon illustrate the activities a child uses to piece together an understanding of the city-adjacent forest outside his high-rise apartment building. Starting with simple opposites ("My forest is tall. My forest is short"), the text ripens into a cascade of playful, well-chosen adjectives thoughtfully paired with images of the child observing the forest throughout the year, then working with different art materials to capture facets of his experience. Crayon rubbings show bark's roughness, sponged paint represents the softness of moss, and found rocks are transformed into turtles, frogs, and fish-"scattered and soggy,/ and spotted and foggy." Each page offers gentle encouragement to get outside, observe carefully, and create joyfully. A jubilant assemblage of the child's creative work near the end shows that "my forest is so many things."
