    1 thought on “Where Once There Was a Wood

    1. It's lovely illustrations and the point is well taken. The back matter gives a more hopeful outlook about creating spaces in our own backyards. I really wish that had been in the story. It seems to have a very abrupt ending. It just says now there are houses twenty deep. If it had something like seeing the wildlife that can still be found it would end on a more upbeat tone.

    2. A very colorful book. It describes the different animals that live together in a forest or a meadow. In the back of the book, it gives you 4 steps to create your own Backyard Habitat. Good for kindergarten and first graders.

    3. In Where Once There Was a Wood, Denise Fleming combines colorful illustrations of forest imagery with simple, poetic text to pay tribute to the beauty of nature and wildlife. The book is simple in that there is not a lot of text to accompany the artwork. The book does not have a plot in the traditional sense. Instead the book can be viewed as one long descriptive sentence. "Where once there was a wood, a meadow, and a creek" is the prelude to a number of colorful images of native wildlife. The a [...]

    4. Where Once There Was a Wood by Denise Fleming is an illustrated poem about our vanishing natural environment as affected by suburban sprawl.Frequently repeating the phrase "where once" while descrbing the animals that once lived on a tract of land, Fleming enumerates how many animals can be affected by housing developments. Our family experienced a similar happenstance when the family farm was sold to become a housing development, though with larger acreage per house. A four page addendum gives [...]

    5. This goes about how one would expect: the animals get kicked out because humans decide they want to live where the animals used to. The illustrations are very unusual, and I could well be wrong but they seem to be made of torn paper, possibly recycled? The story itself is actually one very long sentence, but it lets the reader see various animals in their homes. The supplementary material at the end of the book is what's the standout here (I'd probably give the story/illustrations three stars ot [...]

    6. The story does not contain a lot a words, but mostly pictures. It's about how forests, or animal habitats, are compromised to build new neighborhoods/cities. It shows different animals and the places that they live in throughout the book. At the end it has a picture of homes and a city where the forest and animals used to be. Would be a good book to read when discussing animal habitats and ecosystems. I believe it could really only be used as an opener for conversation after reading as the story [...]

    7. I love Denise Fleming's paper art illustrations in 'Where Once There Was a Wood' published by Henry Holt and Company.She speaks volumes in this light text non-fiction picture book about how urban sprawl has depleted so many natural habitats for our world's animals. The text is simple yet profound and gets a HUGE message across.She offers children the chance to talk to their parents about improving their own habitats they live in to be animal friendly which urban sprawl certainly is not.This book [...]

    8. The illustrations for this book are so rich in texture, depth and color. It is easy to get lost in the illustrations of the wood. But there is one phrase that keeps pulling me out of the wood -- Where once there was. Because I know as I'm reading this book to my son that all the wonderful things that we see depicted in the illustrations are no more. This is a beautiful, thoughtful book, and a great way to introduce of the topic of development vs. preservation.

    9. In this book each page is a different picture of wildlife living in their habitat. The simple text tells what the animals are doing. On the very last page the book explains that where all of this habitat was, there now is 20 houses side by side (I am assuming some kind of housing development). At the end of the book is a bunch of information on how to turn your backyard into habitat for wild animals and critters.

    10. This book is a perfect example of deforestation and urbanization. There're many ways that this could be tied into classroom lessons. For example, when discussing food webs, you could point out that when the trees were chopped down, many of the animals probably had to adapt or move away in order to find something to fill the missing spot in their food web. This story with beautifully illustrated and has a nice flow with the wording.

    11. This thoughtful reflection on how building and development by humans effects animal habitats has wonderful and full illustrations from front to back. The back matter, including welcoming wildlife and backyard habitats, has a lot of useful information which adds to the book. This book would introduce students to animals they may be familiar or unfamiliar with such as pheasants and waxwings. It is useful for connecting nature to our own backyard.

    12. Where Once There Was A Wood talks about the creeping suburbanization of the world, and where there once was a wood is now a backyard. The author brings some great suggestions about how to create a wildlife habitat for even very small animals in your area. The illustrations are amazing papercuts and really beautiful!

    13. Another book about the affect of urbanization on the environment and what plants and animals need to survive. This is a great book to read for earth day in any grade. The students can even mimic the art in the book by using paper mache and paint to create healthy environments for plants and/or animals.Recommended grade level: K-5.

    14. This narrative tells the story of how the world is begging destroyed. It shows the things that were there before humans begun deforestation. I would use this book in my class to teach about deforestation and graphs. I can introduce graphic organizers to my students. They can then create a graphic organizer listing a few facts that happen during deforestation and other facts.

    15. A very colorful book sharing who lives in the wood and what can happen when house come in a disrupt the woods.

    16. I enjoyed the artwork of animal habitats in this book, as well as the last few pages, which explain how to create a backyard habitat for some animals.

    17. I like the point the author is trying to make but I'm not sure it was very clear to the kids. And the kids also didn't seem very interested in reading this book more than once.

    18. I recommend this book for K thrught 3rd grade. Use this book to introduce habitats, pollution and human impact on the enviroment. Grade book for Earth Day for young students.
