Welcome to the Woodland
High above the ground in an old oak tree, a woodpecker and a squirrel are raising their families. In autumn, acorns from the tree will become food for the squirrel family. A carpet of moss plants is home to microscopic animals called moss piglets and soft bedding for a wood mouse’s nest. And when a deer dies in the forest, its body becomes food for a hungry fox and a host of different insects. Step by step, readers will explore a woodland habitat and discover how all the living things form an ecosystem and rely on each other for survival.
