Even the best dog can't do everything. Here is a funny new beginning reader from the same pair that brought you MY CAT IS FAT and MY CAT, MY DOG. Starring The Dog--this book helps children build their reading skills while laughing the entire time.
With a French name that means "spiny pig" and wearing a coat containing needle-sharp quills, the porcupine is usually not thought of as a cuddly mammal. Unless, of course, one is a porcupine's mother. And who better than mama porcupine to remind her little one of all the wonderful physical characteristics that make him unique, as she helps him explore his world. Rhyme and witty wordplay take readers through a night in the life of a young porcupine, relaying facts about its environment, eating habits, and physical attributes. Budding naturalists and readers of all ages will enjoy learning about the not-often-seen but mighty fine porcupine. STEM-based back matter includes photos and additional information.
When Mae the mayfly first hatches she learns she'll have just a day to enjoy the world. But soon a hungry trout has her racing for cover! As she peeks from her hiding spot and notices some of nature's most beautiful sights, she realizes she must live in the moment and experience everything the--sometimes scary--world has to offer. This tender story reminds us all--young and old--to be present and mindful in all we do.
