Thanks for the review and for reccommending the book. Children will learn a thing or two from this book especially about family, creativity and life in the forest.

Official Review: Elizabeth Munk's Forest Edge Adventure by Faye McFarland is effective and fills the mind of sensitive readers with purpose and orientation. The description of the day's journey of the family of chipmunks in the review is full of charm and makes the book a choice of most of the reader! It strikes my fancy to write on the theme of the relationship between nature and human being!

It seems like Elizabeth was one unique munk whose hobies included exploring nature. Kids will enjoy this one and I think it could help even some teens learn about the importance of taking a break from computer addictions (playing games) , for outdoor activities. Thanks for the informative review

I enjoyed reading the sample and a lot of things jumped out to me. For instance, the dynamic relationship between the siblings and between the mother and each of the children. The illustrations were also quite pretty. Thank you for your honest review.
But the path I’ve chosen has always been the right one, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. :)

The art is beautiful! And a bit realistic, too.
It's cute that the youngest chipmunk had a sprightly personality and loved nature. I agree that this sounds like a great book for encouraging kids to explore outside. Great review.

Thank you for your thoughtful review. I think this may be one I pick up for my own children. I saw a sample but after reading your review I see that this book has more to offer then it first appears. I really like glosserys and facts to spark kids imagination even more.

Not only would I recommend this story to children, I would enjoy it myself. The fact that it is full of fun and adventure in the outdoors is my favorite aspect. The informative and educational side to the story is a plus. Great review.

Elizabeth Munk's story seems to be both educational and entertaining for kids, who will learn valuable lessons about nature. Most definitely, it will teach them to enjoy the outdoors and to pay more attention to plants and animals. Thanks for your detailed review!
