My Forest Is Green (Kobo eBook)
A boy explores his urban forest, then interprets it through his art.
With art supplies in tow, a young boy meanders through the forest near his home. A keen observer, the boy sees his forest as both “fluffy” and “prickly,” and as both “crispy” and “soft.” It’s also “scattered and soggy, and spotted and foggy.” His forest is made up of many colors — but he decides that “mostly it’s green.” Each aspect of the forest inspires a different kind of art: charcoal rubbing, rock art, photography, sponge painting, snow sculpture, cut-paper collage. With every new day in the forest, there’s a new way to capture it!
Such a delightful nature companion is sure to awaken the artist in every child.
