Book Review - Chippy Chipmunk: Babies in the Garden

About the Book
Award-winning book based on delightful and humorous photographs of a chipmunk's charming antics as he explores the author's garden. Based in a natural setting, this story enlightens as well as entertains. The photographs give the reader a close-up view of the Eastern Chipmunk. The harnessed energy in a still frame provides interesting expressions not available to the naked eye.

Few can resist the charm of these lively, independent woodland creatures when they pause in their scampering to gaze cheerfully at you with large glossy eyes.

My Take on the Book
Kathy M. Miller has written a informative and humorous story about Chippy the chipmunk who lives in her garden. Mother chipmunk is expecting babies and once the babies are born and emerge from the burrow their education and exploration begins. The book begins with the birth of the four babies, Rosalie, Roosevelt, Benjamin, and Rachel, and ends with them leaving the family to find their won burrows at the age of eight weeks.

In the meantime Kathy photographs them learning and playing in the garden. Her photographs include photos of the predators the young chipmunks need to watch out for as they explore.
The book is full of factual information that will enhance your child's awareness of mammals they share their world with. I recommend this book to all nature loving readers. It will captivate your young naturalist.
