Fabulous, big congratulations to both of you!!
I just read my nonfiction, Autumn in the Forest, to kindergarteners and I find that children can be just as entranced by the natural world as by the imaginary one. All forty of them knew what sound the squirrels make when I asked them to "read along with me," a little chorus of sound. It sounds like this book has the same magic. I have to go get it!
