This is the fourth book by this author illustrator I ve read The collage illustrations are unbelievably superb, just wonderful As with her other fiction picture books, she includes an author s note at the end where she shares a bit about the environmental peril we re in, in this case the wet tropical rain forest wilderness and Great Barrier Reef in Australia I love what Baker is doing regarding using her considerable artistic talent to try to make a difference in environmental preservation T This is the fourth book by this author illustrator I ve read The collage illustrations are unbelievably superb, just wonderful As with her other fiction picture books, she includes an author s note at the end where she shares a bit about the environmental peril we re in, in this case the wet tropical rain forest wilderness and Great Barrier Reef in Australia I love what Baker is doing regarding using her considerable artistic talent to try to make a difference in environmental preservation The collages are top notch I was somewhat less enad of the story my favorite book by her is nearly wordless and while I m sure it s true to culture I wasn t enthusiastic about her showing as a positive the killing, cooking, and eating of fish in a book purporting to try to save the environment But, I do admire her message and am a huge fan of her pictures The three dimensional like pictures in this book are especially appealing to visional learners of all ages Baker also makes use of fading to show imaginary figures which the bright children I was reading to picked up on right away There is little text but that only further enhances the book what needs to be said is and the rest is left to the adult and child to talk about as much or as little as they please My audience of three ages 8 3 were very involved in this book They liked to talk a The three dimensional like pictures in this book are especially appealing to visional learners of all ages Baker also makes use of fading to show imaginary figures which the bright children I was reading to picked up on right away There is little text but that only further enhances the book what needs to be said is and the rest is left to the adult and child to talk about as much or as little as they please My audience of three ages 8 3 were very involved in this book They liked to talk and comment on each page and this was the kind of book which offered many opportunities for interesting conversation Impressive illustrations that are intricate and interesting Jeannie Baker s collage techniques are distinctive and always a pleasure to look through Although I have enjoyed several of this author s wordless picture books I didn t enjoy this one so much, the text didn t live up to the illustrations and I think this might have been better without the text. This book was so hard to get a hold of in my school library and once you did all the pages were crinkled smeared with grubby primary school kids fingerprints and drool.I myself would borrow this book as often as I could and just stare at the pictures.I so wished it had texture because I really wanted to touch it too.which I refrained from because of the drool.I forgot all about this book, but I am getting my own copy so that I may spend hours staring opened mouth, drooling and running my This book was so hard to get a hold of in my school library and once you did all the pages were crinkled

all over this book I loved this book so much as a child I found it at our local library recently and decided to borrow it out to show my kids When it was scanned the librarian told me that my copy had been cancelled and I could keep the book This is a beautiful book Baker s collage art is amazing I really enjoyed how the little boy thinks back to all the things that the tropical forest in North Queensland, Australia has seen over the years, like dinosaurs roaming and aboriginal children playing in the huge trees And I certainly appreciate the message of wanting to preserve the forest because it becomes but a distant memory itself I m just not sure I felt as moved as I ought to have been, given all of this Still, it s definite This is a beautiful book Baker s collage art is amazing I

in the huge trees And I certainly appreciate the message of wanting to preserve the forest because it becomes but a distant memory itself I m just not sure I felt as moved as I ought to have been, given all of this Still, it s definitely a worthwhile read if you re a fan of Baker s work and or looking for a book on modern Australia that doesn t focus on kangaroos and koalas This book literally gave me goose pimples It may not be for everyone but as I love Australia and anything to do with the environment this was the whole package Everything from the collage illustrations to the imaginative elements of long lost dinosaurs and prehistoric beasts, it simply captivated me The story is very simple but because of this it really makes the book unique There is no dramatic or intricate storyline so can be used for a wide array of curriculum subjects The book like all This book literally gave me goose pimples It may not be for everyone but as I love Australia and anything to do with the environment this was the whole package Everything from the collage illustrations to the imaginative elements of long lost dinosaurs and prehistoric beasts, it simply captivated me The story is very simple but because of this it really makes the book unique There is no dramatic or intricate storyline so can be used for a wide array of curriculum subjects The book like all of Jeannie Bakers, has a conservation element but not too obvious or forceful The simple story and illustration leaves the reader decide their own thoughts and opinions.The story is about a boy who goes fishing one day with his father on a small boat to a beautiful and isolated part of the Australian mangrove forest The boy describes the scenes very simply and the illustrations compliment the serenity While his father prepares the fish they caught on the barbecue the boy goes on an adventure He roams the mysterious forest while imagining the long lost inhabitants of animals and the Aboriginal people The illustrations cleverly conceal images of what might have been which would be excellent for KS1 students in guided reading to point out and describe The last page has a very different feel and gives an image of a modern beach with hotels and ice cream I found this to be the interesting part as the individual chooses what they value and which scene isimportant to them This would be great in many subject areas such as creative writing, geography, PSHE, drama and history The book is also large and so could be read in class together with lots of discussion &Download Ebook ↜ Where the Forest Meets the Sea ✗ My father says there has been a forest here for over a hundred million years, Jeannie Baker s young protagonist tells us, and we follow him on a visit to this tropical rain forest in North Queensland, AustraliaWe walk with him among the ancient trees as he pretends it is a time long ago, when extinct and rare animals lived in the forest and aboriginal children played there But for how much longer will the forest still be there, he wonders Jeannie Baker s lifelike collage illustrations take the reader on an extraordinary visual journey to an exotic, primeval wilderness, which like so many others is now being threatened by civilization Impressive pictures, but deadly boring text It reads like a book report by a third grader. I would use this book with a KS2 class and discuss what the book is trying to tell us about the developing world Asking the children how they feel about this, but also why sometimes, sadly, this is necessary I think it is a great learning tool.
