Speaking of counting skills, in all eight of my "Over" habitat books there is always something else besides the animals that kids can count. In "Grasslands"musical gourds that the African people make and use are beautifully illustrated by Jill Dubin. Much to my surprise, in the community where I now live is a very talented couple who have created all kinds of gourd art over the years. In November they displayed some of their amazing gourd creations as I introduced my latest book.
So what habitat haven't I written about yet? Look for "Over in a Desert, Somewhere in the World" in 2018. As for this new year, there will be a release in March, but not an "Over" book. It's called "Baby on Board, How Animals Carry Their Young." More about that next month!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
