Research Notes
“Writing a board book was a new experience for me, but I really enjoyed the challenge of creating the kind of clear, simple text that very young children demand. As I was writing, I kept thinking of my 3-year-old niece, Caroline, and my 5-year-old nephew, Emile. They both have an insatiable curiosity about the natural world, so I know they will love this book."
