Kindergarten-Grade 3-When the spring sun goes down in the desert, a badger comes out of her burrow. As she goes exploring, she encounters all sorts of other nocturnal animals, but she is too busy to dally. Very soon she will give birth, and she's on a mission to find a place big enough to dig her nesting chamber. Readers will enjoy this story and learn a great deal about badgers and the other animals that appear throughout. The floating text, in bold black lettering, is set against bright, full-page illustrations that depict the desert from dusk until dawn. The last page provides a few brief paragraphs about the North American badger. An excellent introduction to a science unit about life in the desert or nocturnal animals.-Christine E. Carr, Lester C.
