About the Book

In this heartfelt poem, the forest announces its wish-list for every season—including sun, mice, and a slug in summer; fruit, song, and spicy smells in the fall; snow, an icy river, and maple sugar in winter; and rain, moist soil, and flowers in spring. And all year long, it wishes for people planting trees and most of all children—rambling, sniffing, and laughing.

Irene O'Garden wrote this ode to nature from the responses of four hundred children—plus some of her own—to the question, Forest, what would you like?
