Curious Kids Nature Guide: Explore the Amazing Outdoors of the Pacific Northwest (Hardcover)
Did you know that there are three different kinds of orca living in Pacific Northwest waters? (Resident, transient, and offshore!) Until I read this book, I had no idea! Not only an awesome nature guide for kids, it’s also great for adults who want a quick introduction to the enchanting flora and fauna of the Pacific Northwest. It's logically arranged (by habitat), easy to navigate, and filled with lessons on how to treat our environment with respect—plus, the illustrations are wonderfully realistic! Everyone should have a copy of this for their home library. -Liz— From Summer Booknotes 2017
