A Day and Night in the Desert

Tap-tap, tap-tap! A woodpecker welcomes morning to the Sonoran Desert, and with it, award-winning author/illustrator Caroline Arnold starts the clock ticking on one 24-hour cycle of animal activity in the desert habitat. Cut-paper illustrations, story-like text, and features such as sidebars, fun facts, and a glossary educate as they entertain.

Horn Book Guide

"Double-page spreads feature vibrantly colored collage animals (not to scale) against appropriately colored backgrounds (browns for Desert; greens for Rain Forest). The engaging text describes animal behavior and survival mechanisms. A description of each habitat, a world map, "Fun Facts," and two Common Core–aligned critical-thinking exercises are appended." - Horn Book Guide

School Library Connection - Madeleine Zember, Librarian and Special Education Teacher, Midway Jewish Center,

"Colorful large cut paper illustrations of animals in their environments fill the pages of this series. The series, geared to early grade readers, describes in a story-like narrative the habitat and its inhabitants. Each spread is about a different hour of the day, a 24-hour cycle." - School Library Connection
