Synopsis

Baby Jack and Jumping Jack Rabbit by Loyd Tireman, Evelyn Yrisarri

Baby Jack lives with his family-Mother Jack, Father Jack, and sister Jumping Jack-in a big mesquite thicket near Mount Baldy. A funny fellow with long legs and long ears, he loves to jump around the mesa. Join Baby Jack in the first book of the Mesaland Series as he explores the desert and encounters other creatures, including a little bee, a grasshopper, and a pile of big red ants. First published between 1943 and 1949 and now available again, the seven books in the Mesaland Series introduce a new generation of readers to the animals and plants of the great Southwest.

Reviews
