The Northward Journey of the ArmadilloBook - 2008
Unknown in the United States before 1850, the nine-banded armadillo has expanded its range northward and eastward as far as Kansas, South Carolina and Florida. Follow a female armadillo from the Texas landscape where she was born and raised to adulthood and child-bearing of her own in Kansas. Watercolors extend across the fold of each double-page spread, illustrating the vast landscape, the ungainly mammal's cozy home and the obstacles and hazards she meets on her journey. The clear text easily brings readers into the journey.
