Secrets Of The Garden

Alices family plants a vegetable garden each spring, and this budding naturalist reports all she sees about how the plants grow, what insects come to eat the plants, and what birds and animals come to eat the insects. Its the food chain, ri...ght in her own backyard! While Alices narrative is simple and engaging, science concepts are presented in more depth in sidebars by a pair of very knowledgeable (and highly amusing) chickens! Noted science writer Kathleen Weidner Zoehfeld knows how to layer information to make it accessible to a wide range of readers and useful for educators. And illustrator Priscilla Lamonts funny, friendly paintings make this a garden everyone will want to explore. Kids will eat up this wonderful book of backyard science?and perhaps theyll even be inspired to eat their vegetables!

Hansa Brown and White Guinea Pig 8 Hansa Toys USA: Heirloom Quality Plush HANSA features 12 distinctively realistic Collections: A...rctic, Aviary, Bears, Cats and Dogs, Down Under, Farm Animals, Monkeys, Safari, Woodland and Prairie, Fantasy Collection, the new Endangered and Extinct Series and Mechanicals. HANSA is famous for their unique and close-to-nature reproductions of the worlds best loved animals. HANSA animals are handcrafted by artists, in green oriented studios. The HANSA Story What makes Hansa Toys different from their competitors is the quality and pin point accuracy of specific animal characteristics that are used in each production: Artists create each Hansa animal from portraits of the creature in its natural habitat. Most fabrics are custom designed and exclusively manufactured to HANSAS exacting specifications. The animals coats are meticulously hand-cut and trimmed, never stamped out by machine. The animals are hand sewn inside out, resulting in the minimization of seams. This development of an exceptional internal stitching method allows the Hansa artisans create effects like muscle tone and features unique to each creature. On average, there are 42 separate pieces required to make each animal. (Some animals have as many as 240 different parts!) The subtle coloring on the animals is hand painted or airbrushed by specially trained Hansa artisans. Each animal is hand finished with loving detail to give them the life like look yet sweet face and cuddly feel that is unmistakably HANSA. Toys that Teach HANSAs goal is to help educate children and adults alike about the natural lives of these magnificent creatures; to understnad, respect and appreciate the importance of our co-existance with all animals. Each animal comes with a Toys that Teach tag describing in detail the animals history, habitat, lifestyle, gestation period, care of their young and eating habits. Read More
