Hopping and stopping, Squirrel sees deer!
But not her mama. She isn’t here.

Through a simple narrative about a squirrel looking for her family, Into the Forest introduces different animal families as they go about their daily lives. With a gentle rhyming text and beautiful illustrations, Into the Forest’s die-cut pages and embossing make this the perfect tactile package for little hands.

Praise

"The layering gives readers a sense of heading deeper into a forest grove, while the bumpy textures in the Popsicle-shaped trees provide an appealing hands-on experience."
Publishers Weekly
"A sweet introduction to some of the animals that inhabit a North American forest . . . Young readers will love the layered and shaped die-cut pages that reveal a different group of animals on each spread.”
Kirkus Reviews
