A CHIPMUNK LIVES HERE

This is careful nature writing for the beginning or the not yet initiated reader by the author of Robins on the Window Sill (1958), another life cycle account of a small creature that is both appealing and familiar to the youngest children. Miss Eberle uses a selection of excellent photographs from many sources to make her information visual and, where the camera could not go, there are clear, cross-sectional drawings of living acommodations underground and burrow construction. The early life cycle, training for survival, the diet, family life, pleasures and hazards of being a chipmunk are described with a full page illustration to each page of text. The format makes the book easy to use with a whole class or to stretch across two laps for reading aloud.
