    Adverbs modify verbs, not nouns.

    Re: need help finding the adverb and preposition in sentence

    The prepositions are "in". You have mentioned prepositional phrases. There are no adverbs in the sentence, but there are adverbial phrases. Can you find phrases that answer the question "when" or the question "where".

    I don't know what that means, but I do know that trees don't simply appear in the woods. (Although, if it did happen how would you know?)

    Re: need help finding the adverb and preposition in sentence

    "With books" is not an adverb; it is an adverbial prepositional phrase. Normally, an adverb is a single word.
