On Our Shelves Now. Click on the title to see details.
From the bestselling series that began with Tree: A Peek-Through Picture Book comes an elaborate and beautiful children's book with peek-through holes that celebrates the coziness of home through the eyes of the animal world.
"All of us need a place to rest: A cave, a warren, a pond, a nest. Wherever we may choose to roam, we need a place to call our home."
A family of bears wanders through the forest, spying all the different places animals call home, including a bird's nest, a beaver lodge, an icy river full of fish, and a maze of rabbit burrows. Finally, as the snow falls, the bears come home to their cozy cave to hibernate, safe and warm.
This comforting celebration of home and nature will enchant children as they peek through the holes on each page to spy each animal. It's the perfect way for families to share a love of science and nature, while cuddled up together in their own homes.
Look for all the books in the Peek-Through Picture Book series: Tree, Bee, Ocean, Moon, and Home.
