The Avid Reader is proud to welcome Sacramento area children’s author Connie McLennan and her first work of non-fiction for youth, The Forest in the Trees, in-store on Saturday, October 26th.
More about The Forest in the Trees:
Connie McLennan’s The Forest in the Trees asks the question “What’s in the tops of Earth’s tallest trees?” It reveals a green ocean high in the coast redwood canopy, a hidden world most human eyes have never seen.
Forest in the Trees is written for ages seven to ten, and was just awarded the 2019 Silver Eureka for Non-Fiction Children's Book by the California Reading Association.
