Elementary

Description

This picture book creatively shows that even animals recycle! In this case it is a burrow under a tree that from season to season, becomes home to a variety of different woodland creatures.  Students will be struck by how many different animals can make this same burrow their home.

The storyline introduces young readers to woodland animals and their habitats.  It provides interesting facts about each animal such as the season it uses the burrow, what it eats, the number of young in a litter and the predators it must hide from.  Students will enjoy learning about the natural world through stories and pictures.
