Visit the library and you’ll find no shortage of kid’s books telling the tales of animals, but few introduce little readers to creatures as up close and personal as David FitzSimmons’ new book Curious Critters does. Featuring amazing photographs that let kids look eye to eye with a flying squirrel and see the detailed pattern of a Black Swallowtail. FitzSimmons’ striking images are sure to amaze kids more than drawings of the same fauna. To write the text, FitzSimmons imagined that each critter talked to him during his portrait session. He hopes that the book will inspire children and adults alike to conserve nature.
