There are lots of babies in the bayou, and even though they might have sharp teeth, hard shells, webbed feet, or quick claws, their mothers still need to watch over them and protect them from harm. The babies learn how to dig, swim, and follow their alert mothers' lead. Children will fall under the bayou's spell as they learn all about this unusual and rich habitat.

About Jim Arnosky

Jim Arnosky is well known for his keen observations of nature and his fine artistic talent (School Library Journal). He has written and illustrated many children's books. Otters Under Water was called first-rate natural history for the youngest by Kirkus Reviews (pointer review), and School Library Journal wrote that in it each of his creatures exhibits a distinct individualism. Every Autumn Comes the Bear was called vibrant, translucent and strikingly composed by Publishers Weekly, and Booklist wrote Arnosky's radiant pictures have a dazzling sense of pattern and composition . . . and a sense of mystery. A beautiful, imaginative, and informative approach. School Library Journal said of Rabbits & Raindrops, "Perfect for story-time or lap-time reading, this book will give children a feeling of security and contentment."

Jim Arnosky and his family live on a twenty-acre farm in Vermont.
