NEW BOOK: A DAY AND NIGHT IN THE DESERT, Written and Illustrated by Caroline Arnold

Tap-tap, tap-tap! pecks a Gila woodpecker. Morning is here!
Are you ready to race through the day alongside roadrunners and jackrabbits? Hunt through the night alongside coyotes and snakes? Come spend a day and night in the Sonora Desert. The clock is ticking … Time to look, listen, and learn!
Every day and every night animals are busy in the Sonora desert. They find food, water and safe places to rest. They have everything they need. 

A DAY AND NIGHT IN THE DESERT follows a 24 hour cycle of activity, highlighting the role of each animal in its habitat and how the habitat supports a variety of life. The illustrations progress from daylight to darkness to daylight again, visually supporting the progression of activity through the day and night. This book can be read aloud to younger children or an older child can read it alone.
Sidebars on each page spread expand information in the text. Back matter includes a map of deserts of the world, fun facts, a glossary and index, and a guide to websites appropriate for the age group.

A DAY AND NIGHT IN THE DESERT is one of four books in my new series Caroline Arnold’s Habitats. It is available in both hardcover library binding and in a paperback edition.
