Description


Gorgeous, detailed artwork accompanies the information about the lives of animals throughout the seasons, revealing the diverse ways that some animals are active at night while others are active during the day. Children in classrooms and at home will be inspired to appreciate the world around us

"While you are sleeping and when you arise, animals everywhere lead busy lives. Winter or summer, and all the year through, let's take a look at what some of them do." Eagles fish for breakfast, bats eat mouthfuls of mosquitoes, squirrels busily gather acorns, and cougars quietly prowl through snow. Diane's delightful rhyming verses depict the diverse lives of two animals for each month of the year--one animal that's active during the day and another active at night, for a total of 24 fascinating critters. Andrea gives her water color paintings a stylized flair by employing her own unique digital technique.

This debut sparkle's with well written characters, family dynamics gone awry and a deeply embedded Kansas location that is normally not written about. The only -too-real mother/daughter relationship is fraught with misunderstandings and hard won truths. How Mandelbaum handles a bone weary, obsessed and depressed woman on the verge of losing everything -- her home, her daughter, her animals and the entire sanctuary - is writing at its best. Surely, a writer to watch! - reveiw by Maureen
