About the Author
As a child, Jennifer spent a lot of time exploring in nature, and often wrote stories about what she saw. Sometimes she wrote them just for herself. Sometimes she gave them to her parents. Also as an adult, Jennifer immersed herself in nature. She became a teacher-but eventually decided to write full time for children. She is now the author of several popular children's books. Forest Bright, Forest Night is Jennifer's first book with Dawn Publications.
Jamichael Henterly never intended to be a book illustrator. He was an Army paratrooper, an infantry medic, a firefighter and a Forest Service fire lookout. He wanted to be a scientist, but he loved to draw-and somehow "blundered into" illustrating as a career. Jamichael does lots of research when he illustrates. He says that "to draw like an artist helps you to see like a scientist, and to see like a scientist helps you to draw like an artist. I strive to capture in my pictures the same beauty and wonder that captivates and excites me as an observer of nature." He lives along a wild river near Deming, Washington.

This book tells the story of what forest animals are doing during the day and night. It tells the information from the animals that sleep during the day¿s point of view. Then you can flip the book over and it tells what other animals are doing while the other animals are sleeping. While the deer is awake the owl sleeps, and the other part of the book tells what the owl is doing while the deer sleeps. This is a good book that compares the animals that sleep in the day with the animals that sleep at night.
The book was great. I liked how it flipped over and did the night next. The rhymes taught me all about animals. Its a great book.
I first heard about this book while at a workshop focused on incorporating the outdoors into the preschool curriculum. After reading this story, I just had to have it in our school library. The pictures are bright and colorful. The images are captivating. Each page of the story contains rhyming words. Each page also relates to a specific number. For each page you will find the number hidden in the picture as well as that number of animals. It is a great cross curricular-book for any child regardless of how old they are.
