The Burgess Animal Book for Children (Color Edition) (Yesterday's Classics) (Paperback)
To answer Peter Rabbit's questions about his relatives, Old Mother Nature holds a school for the animals every day at sun-up for a month. Encouraging the animals to notice the differences between them and to offer their observations of animal behavior, Old Mother Nature helps them all gain a greater understanding of the mammals of North America. Starting with the animals close to home, the school moves in ever-widening circles to encompass the animals of the far west and the extreme north, as well. All the color illustrations from the original book are included and placed in the text where the animal is first described. A fine introduction to mammals for students in the primary grades.
