Stranger in the Woods

Children find such delight in being outside and playing with things they find in the woods.  Sometimes, when no one is looking, those very things make their way inside the house and into a heap on the table!  As I returned from my morning visit to our hens, I found just such a heap appropriately positioned atop the corner of one of our favorite children’s books, Stranger in the Woods.


Stranger in the Woods, by Carl R. Sams II and Jean Stoick, takes readers on a photographic adventure of woodland proportion as the creatures in a forest investigate a new resident that appears after a fresh snowfall.  We’ll review this classic in more depth in the February issue of Woods Reader.  You will also be able to purchase the book from the Woods Reader Marketplace, opening on Monday, February 19 at our website:

And off I go, to cuddle with kiddos during story time.  Happy reading!
