Good Morning Loon: It’s Early Morning – What’s Happening on the Lake?
by Elizabeth Varnai. Illustrations by Kate Hartley.
A mother and child venture to the lake, meeting many animals along the way in this delightful nature adventure. Children of all ages will enjoy identifying various creatures (wood frogs, ospreys, great blue herons and many more) and learning more about their specific abilities in a simply worded index at the end of the story. Lovely, detailed, watercolor illustrations complement an educational narrative that is sure to be enjoyed by both young & old. Our daughter (a librarian), particularly enjoyed all the built-in opportunities for adults to ask children questions about the animals in the story, a natural way to encourage verbal processing and build the important skill of reading comprehension.
