Did you know that a chipmunk's cheek pouches can hold over 30 sunflower seeds? That's probably even more than a professional baseball player I bet.
This is something you would know if you had read the lovely nature book, Chippy Chipmunk Parties in the Garden, by Kathy M. Miller. Filled with beautiful high-quality nature prints of Chippy taken by Kathy in her backyard, the book designed for children and all nature lovers presents a tale about Chippy, his friends and his enemies.
Chippy's book has become so popular that it will be read by students in Grades K-6 across the state of Pennsylvania during the next school year as part of the Keystone to Reading Book Award List. The children will vote on their favorite book after they have read a selection of 12 books. (For more information, visit here.)
This hardcover book would make a great gift to share with the youngsters in your life, that is, after you have enjoyed reading it yourself and paging through the photos. To learn more about the book, visit here.
