Animals are so busy! In daytime eagles dive for fish, lizards gobble insects, and tortoises dine on cactus flowers. When night falls, bats catch moths, crickets sing, and cougars prowl. Engaging rhymes describe the action through the cycle of every day and night, as well as through each month of the year. An "Explore More" section provides teachers and parents with lots of ideas to expand on the seasonal and nocturnal themes.
This is an enchanting nonfiction picture book that takes the reader through the calendar year observing animals and insects in the daytime and at night. The illustrations are exactly right for this age and the light verse is easy to understand. The back of the book has teaching activities and more information. This would be a good book for science in a preschool or early elementary classroom or at home.
There are so many animals in this book that I've just included a couple.
