About the Author:

Caroline Arnold is the author of 150 books for children. Her many honors include awards from the American Library Association, P.E.N., the National Science Teachers Association, and the Washington Post / Children's Book Guild. Caroline’s interest in animals and the outdoors began when she was a child growing up in Minnesota. After majoring in art and literature at Grinnell College in Iowa, she received her M.A. in art from the University of Iowa. Caroline lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Art, a neuroscientist.

From Booklist:

These additions to Caroline Arnold’s Animals series act as a charming bridge between picture books and higher-level nonfiction. Each book includes a narrative that tells the story of young animals growing up from birth until “they are ready to live on their own.” The stories, related in the present tense, feel immediate and engaging. There are even occasional sound effect words, as when the newly hatched eaglets express their hunger with a “Peep! Peep!” in A Bald Eagle’s World. The plainness of the fact boxes contrasts with Arnold’s beautiful but simple artwork, which cleanly captures the essence of each animal. Very basic backgrounds keep the illustrations’ focus squarely on the creatures. The back matter includes a map showing where the animals live, a list of fun facts, and a short glossary—all basic enough not to overwhelm younger children—and those elements seem more useful than the pro forma index, list of additional books, and Internet sites. Overall, these books’ perfectly balanced mix of facts, story, and pictures will hold young readers’ attention and help them learn Grades K-2. --Miriam Aronin
