Description

This book features three captivating children's picture books written and illustrated by a talented husband and wife team, all of which focus on wildlife ecology and depict memorable scenes from the natural world.


The Big Snow takes place when the geese are headed south and the forest creatures put on their winter coats. When a blanket of snow covers the hills and valleys the birds, squirrels, mice, and other animals gratefully gather the seeds, nuts, and other foods that the little old man and woman spread for them.


Cock-a-Doodle-Doo traces a little chick's journey from a duck farm to the big red barn where the rooster's cry draws him across the wide meadow and its many dangers from crows and raccoons to a marauding fox.


The Mighty Hunter is actually Little Brave Heart who is reluctant to go to school - until he encounters a prairie dog, wildcat, buffalo, and other animals that change his mind about the value of reading and writing.


These timeless stories, with their lush illustrations, are a treasure to keep on the shelf for kids and grandkids and should appeal to both parent and child alike. This is a wonderful collection of Caldecott Award-winning tales perfect for a young reader who loves stories about animals.
