NEW BOOK: A DAY AND NIGHT ON THE PRAIRIE, Written and Illustrated by Caroline Arnold

Wee-o! Wee-o! calls the prairie dog. Morning is here!
Are you ready to fly through the day alongside hawks and bees? Creep through the night alongside foxes and skunks? Come spend a day and night on the North American prairie. The clock is ticking … Time to look, listen, and learn!
Every day and every night animals are busy on the prairie. They find food, water and safe places to rest. They have everything they need.

A DAY AND NIGHT ON THE PRAIRIE 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 cut paper 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 grasslands of the world, fun facts, a glossary and index, and a guide to websites appropriate for the age group.

A DAY AND NIGHT ON THE PRAIRIE is one of four books in my new series Caroline Arnold’s Habitats published by PictureWindow Books (Capstone.) It is available in both hardcover library binding and in a paperback edition.
