The forest habitat is home to many perennial 'favorites' -- forest animals like bears, chipmunks, foxes, beavers, owls, and more. This makes it a popular setting for children's books! And, it's a habitat that is generally quite familiar to children, and thus a great pick for early, 'starter' lessons on habitats.
Plus, along with ponds and rivers, it's probably the best habitat to focus on when teaching children how to make scientific observations in the natural world. (Kids love 'nature walks'!) We hope this list of the ten best children's books on the forest habitat and forest animals helps!
