Super cute book that I found for $1 at a used curriculum sale. I would pay more if I had to do it again. Super cute, fun pictures, and in a rhyme/repetitive fashion that it captures the attention of my 5 year old. My 3 and 2 year old will usually sit for other stories but apparently not this one for some reason... I think they are just wiggly this week.

Great for desert dwellers... or those that love it or study it with early elementary kids. Has helpful and fun info on the Saguaro.
I like the illustrations of this book, I like the repetitive nature of the story, and I liked learning about Saguaro Cactus (thanks for having a pronunciation key in the book Suh-wah-roh) and even though I don't like rodents it is a cute enough rodent to not make me freak out!

I love the added information at the end of the book. This would be a great early elementary non-ficton book as well as just a good fiction book.
