The Little Forest Primer
Book design by Christiane Dunkel-Koberg
People are irresistibly drawn to forests, whether to study them, pick berries and fruit, play and climb trees or as a peaceful place for resting and finding inspiration. It is these many different aspects of woods and forests that Linda Wolfsgruber explores in her little forest primer.
She describes in vivid terms how woods change over the seasons and how much there is to see in a forest. She also offers some delicious recipes that can be made with forest fruits and plants, interspersed with poems by a range of writers that will make the reader dream and think.
The centrepiece of this forest primer is a collection of profiles of the most common European trees. Printed see-through sheets show the young leafless tree in winter as well as the grown tree in its summer foliage. Linda Wolfsgruber’s atmospheric illustrations make this book a heartfelt ode to the forest and will spark a desire in readers young and old to rediscover the forest.
