The Tree in the Ancient Forest is a marvelous book and a fine introduction to the life of a forest for ages 4 to 10.
—NAPRA Review

Reed-Jones' cumulative verse technique, which very effectively illustrates the ecological concept, will make this book a lively story-time or lap-share read-aloud as well as a good choice for choral reading. Canyon's superb double-page illustrations can be appreciated both as fine works of art and as detailed studies of forest flora and fauna.Booklist

About Carol Reed-Jones

I am a children's author. When I'm not working on a writing project, I'm either visiting schools to do writing workshops and assemblies, or I'm hiking or playing in a marimba group with friends.

Ever since second grade, when I saw a film about the husband and wife team who wrote and illustrated the book about a hermit crab named Pagoo, I've known I wanted to be a writer.

In third grade I wrote my first story for fun, about Pumpy Pumpkin, who finds buried treasure with the help of his animal friends. I enjoyed all the creative writing assignments I had, from grade school to college--but not reports, which I tended to do at the last minute. Now I like writing nonfiction information in a creative way, like setting the salmon cycle to a poem.

Often, in classes or written articles, writers are advised to write what they know. I prefer to choose what I'd like to know more about, then write about it. It's impossible to be bored when you're learning great new stuff all the time. The thing I like best about being a writer, after the creative thrill, is digging around for new things to discover and write about.
