Unwrapping the Story

This delightful book is from the author and illustrator of "I Would Tuck You In".  This new picture book is filled with gorgeous illustrations and would be a wonderful addition to your young child's nature library. 

Various animals are depicted in their natural environments. The book recapitualtes some of their habits and how the parents nurture their young.  Kids will love seeing the care and bonding that occurs between the baby animals and their loving parents.  

 A blue whale has a summer home in the north and a winter home in the south, a flying squirrel lives in a hole within a tree, a tufted puffin digs a burrow on the edge of a cliff near the sea, and a moose  finds a new place to sleep every night, stomping down the ground in a circle to form a bed, just to cite a few.  The author includes an interesting non-fiction fact about the animal on each spread.  

This book was created by a gifted husband and wife team.  It is a perfect introduction to wild animals and their adorable offsprings and a perfect book to share at bedtime or anytime.  The message is positive and heartwarming.  It is a confirmation to both the animal world and the human world that home is where the heart is.  I highly recommend this book.
