Description

Using gentle, rhythmic text and gorgeous watercolor paintings, Jim Arnosky invites young readers to imagine what wondrous things animals are doing across the globe. While you might be sweating in the middle of the afternoon, an owl has found a cool hiding place inside a cactus. And while you're filling up on dinner, puffins are swooping down on the ocean by the cliffs to catch fish. It's an amazing world out there-at this very moment.show more
