More About What’s a Shrew to You?

This new rhyming picture sled dog trail book encourages young people to go outside and be curious about the wildlife around them, especially in the boreal forest of Alaska.

Jon Van Zyle’s colorful illustrations inspire the reader to look more closely at the real world and experience an Alaskan adventure. Susan Grace’s CD, tucked in a back pocket, helps beginning readers learn their words. Her melody sings in your mind long after the reading is over. A track identification bookmark is also included.
