Curious Critters Volume Two by David Fitzsimmons

Unbelievably detailed, close-up images of twenty common North American animals bring young readers eye-to-eye with wildlife found in their own backyards. Photographed against white backgrounds, the incredible creatures' colors, shapes, textures, and seeming personalities shine. Entertaining and educational narratives accompany the animals, highlighting fascinating natural history information. Learn about monarch migration, bird calls, baby rabbits, and more! Back matter includes a visual index, additional animal facts, a two-page life-size spread of silhouettes, and a full glossary. With such stunning photography, you'll never see nature the same way again!
