Chippy Chipmunk: Babies in the Garden...Review & Giveaway!

If your children are anything like mine, they love little animals. My little ones love all those furry friends like squirrels, bunnies and chipmunks. When I had the opportunity to check out the newly released Chippy Chipmunk: Babies in the Garden I could not wait to share it with my crew! Here is the scoop on what my kiddos have been having me read over and over again...

Chippy Chipmunk: Babies in the Garden is a delightful glimpse into the real lives of baby chipmunks featuring more than 80 beautiful photographs and an educational, fun narrative. The second book in this multi-award winning series, continues the adventures of Chippy, the author's resident chipmunk, who we met in Chippy Chipmunk Parties in the Garden. Chippy has found a mate and started a family. This book captures humorous and intimate moments of baby chipmunks interacting in the author's garden and finding their way in the world. Since chipmunks quickly disperse within a few weeks of emerging from the burrow, author/photographer Kathy Miller provides rare moments in a natural habitat most people never see. Interesting facts about chipmunks are included in the back of the book that enhance learning, expand vocabulary and raise a child's curiosity. Miller's unique approach and style narrow the growing gap between children and nature. This high quality, enlightening book weaves together the best of visual and language arts, science, photography and narrative.



First of all, the story itself is great.  The kids love hearing all about Chippy, Mama Lily and their new babies Benjamin, Roosevelt, Rachel and Rosalie.  The kids think it is exciting and fun to hear about the new chipmunks adventures and I love how it gives them a look into nature and the world around them.  Secondly, the pictures in this book are nothing short of amazing. The up close and personal pictures of these furry little loves is simply tremendous.  The kids enjoy flipping through this book on their own just for the pictures.  Chippy Chipmunk:  Babies in the Garden by Kathy M. Miller will appeal to children of all ages and the adults who read to them.  The story is sweet and the photographs are outstanding.  We are looking forward to hearing more from Chippy Chipmunk and his adorable family!  Check out this little video for a look at some of Kathy M. Miller's inspiration...
