Little Red Bat - One little red bat wonders if she should hibernate or migrate to a warmer region for the winter. Some animals tell her to stay, but she knows that dangerous creatures hunt red bats in the winter. Other animals tell her to go, but where? What will the little red bat decide?
On the Move: Mass Migrations - Many animals gather in huge numbers and can be seen at predictable times and locations. Not all migrations are tied to seasonal food changes - some are tied to life cycles and the need to gather in huge numbers. Certain birds, reptiles, mammals, amphibians, fish, and even insects migrate during spring, summer, fall, or winter. Travel along with them as you learn what makes these animals migrate.
Salamander Season - A young girl and her scientist father participate in
Salamander Night to follow hundreds of spotted salamanders as they venture into a vernal pool to mate and lay eggs. Together, the father-daughter team studies the salamanders through their complete amphibian metamorphosis, culminating in the adult salamanders' disappearance into the woods in late summer.
Shark Baby - When his
mermaid's purse egg case is torn loose in a storm, Shark Baby finds himself on a journey through different ocean habitats: kelp forests, coral reefs, and seagrass meadows. He learns what kind of shark he isn't, but not what kind he is. Can he find out who he is - and what he can do - in time?
They Just Know: Animal Instincts - How do some young animals know what to do and how to do it without being taught? Explore animal instincts through engaging text and fanciful illustrations.
Where Should Turtle Be? - Little turtle, newly hatched, finds himself lost and alone. The other animals tried to help, but he just didn't feel at home in their habitats. Where could he turn for help?
Whistling Wings - Marcel, a young tundra swan, is tired from the first half of the winter migration, so he hides in the rushes to stay behind while his parents and the flock continue south. He soon realizes that he is not cut out for life on the ice. Other animals offer advice about how to survive the winter, but their ways of living aren't right for the swan. Hungry and scared, he falls asleep - only to be awakened by a big surprise!
