Tucked away beneath a big tree on the edge of a field lies a home --- a small burrow --- for many. In every season, a different creature makes its home here and then moves on, making room for the next occupant. After a long winter's sleep, the woodchuck relocates to another burrow, but its former home is not left vacant for long. A cottontail rabbit raises her family there. After the kits have all hopped away, a salamander takes refuge in the same safe place. Through this engaging and informative introduction to woodland animals in their habitats, young readers will delight in learning about natural science as it is integrated into an inviting picture book.

Pamela is an award-winning author of over 35 non-fiction nature books for children, including The Kids Canadian Nature Series, First Look at Nature Series, Animal Senses and Animals Hibernating. She lives in Canning, Nova Scotia.

Books for Growing Minds

Valerio's acrylic illustrations jump off the page ... He uses naturalistic swathes of color to portray the seasons and the animals, excellently conveying birth, renewal and the passage of time --- indeed, the vivid and kinetic paintings are the real standout.
