From the author and illustrator of the popular I Would Tuck You In, this endearing picture book introduces young children to the characteristics of a variety of animals, showing parents and their babies interacting in their natural habitats.
Explore the many ways that animals teach their young to thrive in this charming picture book.
A bald eagle teaches an eaglet to fly. A black bear teaches its cub how to pluck berries from a branch. An ermine teaches its baby how to tunnel through the snow. And a spotted seal teaches its pup how to dive. Young children will learn all about these animals and more, as each spread also includes a short piece of nonfiction about each creature.
Lovingly illustrated and lyrically written, this is the third children's book written and illustrated by the husband-and-wife artist and author team Mitchell Watley and Sarah Asper-Smith.
About the Author
SARAH ASPER-SMITH makes her home up 100 stairs in Juneau, Alaska, with her husband, Mitchell Watley. In addition to writing children's books, Sarah works developing and designing museum exhibits.
Although MITCHELL WATLEY now lives in Alaska, he still considers Texas his home. When he is not collaborating with his wife, Sarah, on an artistic project or a delicious meal, he can often be found painting in his studio or walking their dog on the beaches near their home.
"Watley’s gorgeous, realistic-looking spreads immerse children in each animal’s habitat"--Kirkus Reviews
