Patterns in the Forest introduces emergent readers to patterns in the forest, such as spots on mushrooms or markings on an owl’s feathers, while providing them with a supportive first nonfiction reading experience. Carefully crafted text uses high-frequency words, repetitive sentence patterns, and strong visual references to support emergent readers, making sure they aren’t facing too many challenges at once. Patterns in the Forest includes tools for teachers and caregivers, as well as introductory nonfiction features such as labels, a table of contents, words to know, an index, and a Let’s Review! question and photo. Patterns in the Forest is part of Jump!’s Patterns in Nature series.
