I loved Fur and Feathers by Janet Halfmann with artwork by Laurie Allen Klein. It’s an imaginative story full of silly fun and solid scientific information for young inquiring minds. Listening to the audio reading of the book was most enjoyable. I picture children sitting in a circle captivated and transfixed by this story. The text is also available in Spanish. As a parent, teacher, and author, I really appreciate a book as enchanting and stimulating as this one is. There are additional teaching resources and activities online.
