Summary
"The boreal forest is our planet's largest land biome. A scarf around the neck of the world, it spans a dozen countries, from Canada to the mountain peaks of Japan. Parts of the biome are so remote, few humans have ever seen them. But the forest plays a vital role on our planet. It is home to an incredible diversity of species. Its trees clean our air, and its wetlands clean our water. Known as a "carbon sink," the biome plays an important role in slowing global climate change. These are just a few reasons why the boreal forest is worth appreciating -- and protecting. In this beautifully written book, award-winning author L. E. Carmichael takes us on an year-long journey through this vast and vital wilderness. The lyrical fictional narrative tells of the species that live in the forest, paired with informational sidebars that expand on key concepts and provide further context. We also learn about the forest's geography and history, the significant role it plays in regulating the planet's climate and the water cycle that connects the forest all around the world. Additional material in the end matter includes a world map of the boreal forest, information about the water cycle and carbon cycle, a glossary, author's sources, resources for kids and an index. Artwork by award-winning children's illustrator Josée Bisaillon provides a rare glimpse into life in the biome. Expertly researched, and written in consultation with Indigenous peoples who live in the boreal forest, Boreal is an exploration of one of the most beautiful places on Earth."--
