Originally published in 1980, How the Forest Grew is not flashy or even colorful but it is a true gem. The book traces the slow restoration of a plowed field back into a hardwood forest in Massachusetts. First the plowed field used for farming is overgrown with weeds and is considered a meadow. Next fast growing sun loving trees take over and the meadow turns into a forest. Next slower growing and shade loving trees start to take over and the forest floor. At each stage of transformation the author describes the animals and plants that inhabit the new habitat

This is how forests grow, I quietly quoted the book to the children in explanation of the pines’ demise.

This is how forests grow, I quietly quoted the book to the children in explanation of the pines’ demise. Every time one of them died, the book explained, it made room for the new and different trees that had been sprouting on the forest floor. This group of urban fifth-graders moving through the understory, ducking under Mohamad teaching at Fair Haven Middle branches and jumping over Photo by Mary Alice Lamb Grew (written by William Jaspersohn and illustrated by Chuck Eckart). It takes two hundred years back in time, I read to the children, to see how the forest land looked back then and how it has changed over time.

Making use of companion planting, these can be intermixed to grow in a succession of layers to build a woodland habitat.

"Careful explanation, an elegant, reverent style, and beautiful illustrations highlight this chronology of a forest's growth." -- Booklist.

I love this book! It was used in a college science course to demonstrate how to use one's changing community to students. I have used this book more than once and loaned it to peers. We all love the simple story of how a forest begins and matures. It was also fun to research the place where our own community originated and how it has changed over time. We are blessed to be near a forest, so going to see the trees in a variety of stages ties the book directly to the content being taught.

This 55 page little book is absolutely fabulous for teaching kids (and their parents) about how a forest is created. An excellent job of showing how a forest is ever changing and what type of trees are shade tolerant, which trees show up first and which animals need which ecosystem. The black and white artwork is exact, gives a calming affect and keeps the eye looking for other critters. I'd recommend every teacher and school library to carry this book.
