Globe and Mail Review!

What a lovely surprise to open up the Books section of Saturday's Globe and Mail to see a review of my two newest books — Desert Animals and Wetland Animals — by Susan Perren, editor of Children's Books. 

In her review she says, "Habits as well as habitats, prey as well as predators, of hippopotamus and anaconda, mallard duck and moose, are presented in word and picture in an engaging and appropriate way for the books' intended audience." 

These books — the third and fourth in the Who Lives Here? series — are designed for children, ages 4-7. The books take a playful look at how animals' bodies and habits are suited to the place where they live. For more information on the series, please click here.

A big thank you to the talented illustrator, Pat Stephens, whose beautiful art graces these books.

Happy Labour Day, everyone!

Congrats, Debbie!

I've seen the first two books in this series---full of great info and images for very young readers---so I'm looking forward to opening the covers on these two, too. Well done!
