Learn the many calls of America’s birds in this visual journey across the country.

“I’m as lazy as a lizard, I’m as busy as a bee.  Put it all together and you’ve got ME!”  This short read encourages children to look within themselves, realize how complex human beings really are, and to celebrate the differences and similarities we undoubtedly share with all the creatures that walk this earth.  There is no limit to who you can become, or what you can achieve!

In this book, the narrator follows a mouse’s every move as he picks a straw-berry and tries to keep it from the ominous Big Hungry Bear. After disguising the strawberry, hiding it, and putting it under lock and key, the narrator suggests the best way to make sure the bear doesn’t get it: “cut it in half, give me the other half, and eat it!” Told from an interesting point of view, the reader feels like part of the story.
