Down In The Forest - Yvonne Morrison & Jenny Cooper
The traditional tale Over in the Meadow is a classic. In Down in the Forest the author takes this structure and retells it featuring native forest flora and fauna. Down in the forest, seeking shelter from the sun, lived a brown mother kiwi and her little kiwi one.
"Sleep!" said the mother. "I sleep!" said the one. So they slept all day in their shelter from the sun.
