New BOARD BOOK: A Panda’s World

In a den high in the mountains of China, a baby giant panda is born. Tiny at first, the young animal quickly grows. Soon it will join its mother as she searches for bamboo in the forest. Follow this plant eater through his second winter as he learns to live on his own.

A Panda’s World, now available as a board book for young readers, has just been published by Picture Window books. This book, based on the 2006 book with the same title but with a shorter text, brings the story of a panda's first year of life to younger readers. It follows a baby panda from birth to life on its own in its natural habitat in the mountains of China. It can be read aloud to younger children or an older child can read it alone.

A readable and lively text provides a close-up look at these rare black and white mammals in this "anything but black and white" book. Cut paper illustrations help tell the tales of these amazing animals and the world in which they live.
