As night falls, a striped little face peeks out from a large hole that's been dug into a bank. Then, a stocky, hairy body emerges from the hole. The animal is a badger, and it's leaving its burrow to spend the night hunting for prairie dogs, rats, and other small animals. Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of its early elementary school audience, Badger's Burrow gives young readers a chance not only to learn, but also to develop their powers of observation and critical thinking through activities and questions. Clear text and colorful photos and diagrams will engage young readers as they learn about the natural habitat, physical characteristics, diet, and behavior of badgers.
