Home For the Holidays: A Perfect Time to Read to Your Children
To help you get into the spirit of the happiest season of all, we are having a GIVEAWAY. Giving the gift of books and taking time to read to your children must find its way to the top of your “to-do” list every day. Check out our suggestions for your Christmas shopping list and enter for your chance to win a set of three amazing rescue and rehabilitation books by Christie Gove.
The author thrills readers with true stories of rescue and rehabilitation with her best-sellers Maggie the One-Eyed Peregrine Falcon, Esther the Eaglet, and her latest book Greta the Great Horned Owl, a tale of an injured owl’s recovery and return to nature.
Wildlife photographer and naturalist Stan Tekiela will make you laugh while you read Whose Baby Butt?. From fuzzy to feathery, baby animal butts are the silliest sights in nature. This hilarious book is the perfect companion to Whose Butt?, an acclaimed picture book by the same award-winning author. And while we are on this fun subject, don’t miss Stan’s Critter Litter: See What Critters Leave Behind. His latest children’s book Can You Count the Critters? helps young children learn to count and recognize iconic, adorable animals at the same time. His upcoming book Whose Track is That? helps children uncover the clues that animals leave behind.
Stan recently started a wonderful bird identification guide series for children, and books for the following states are already available: The Kids’ Guide to Birds of Minnesota, The Kids’ Guide to Birds of Florida, The Kids’ Guide to Birds of Wisconsin, and The Kids’ Guide to Birds of Ohio. Coming in 2020 are The Kids’ Guide to Birds of Georgia and The Kids’ Guide to Birds of Texas.
Tweens and teens will love Rock Collecting for Kids, in which Dan R. Lynch, author of many field guides, presents a children’s introduction to our amazing Earth. James Kuether’s The Amazing World of Dinosaurs will spark the imaginations of children and adults alike, and Emma’s First Agate by James Magnuson takes children on a treasure hunt while instilling a lifelong respect and love of the outdoors.
Stan Tekiela teamed up with Marion Dane Bauer for Jump, Little Wood Ducks and Baby Bear Discovers the World. His collaboration with Marion also gave us Some Babies Are Wild, a book celebrating the precious relationship between mother and child, and The Cutest Critters, a Mom’s Choice Awards® winner. Together with Ryan Jacobson, Stan produced Super Animal Powers: The Amazing Abilities of Animals and What Eats That?, a book about predators, prey, and the food chain.
Last, but certainly not least, Sophie’s Night Sky Adventure by Jonathan Poppele will keep your children awestruck as they discover some of the best-known constellations.
