STRANGER IN THE WOODS

Author: Carl R Sams II and Jean Stoic

Illustrator: Carl R. Samms II and Jean Stoick

Reserve at the Library

Publisher: Carl R. Sams II Photography, Inc.,

Material: hard cover

Summary: Somehow, overnight, something changed in the woods. The deer noticed, the birds and squirrels noticed, even a mouse. But what should they do? The stranger offered food, but didn't talk. He didn't even move! This is a photographic story in the woods on a winter day.

Type of Reading: bedtime story, playtime reading, read aloud book, learning to read

Recommended Age: read together: 3 to 8; read yourself: 5 to 8

Interest Level: 3 to 8

Reading Level: 2.9

Age of Child: Started reading with child at 4 years old.

Young Reader Reaction: It has taken about two years of on-and-off attempts to get our child interested in this book. S/He liked Winter Friends and kept setting this book aside for that one. Now, this is a book s/he will enjoy independently.

Adult Reader Reaction: We loved this book from the beginning, and are glad to see that our child has finally come around to enjoy all that it has to offer.

Pros: This photo-story is fun reading all year round (despite being set in the snow). There is plenty to enjoy, even if you just want to look at the pictures and not say a word.

Cons: None.

Borrow or Buy: Borrow, at least. This strikes us as a book that your kids will want for their kids. It has great potential for reading on snowy days, around the holidays, or even summer days when you want to FEEL cool.
