"While you are sleeping and when you arise, animals everywhere lead busy lives. Winter or summer, and all the year through, let's take a look at what some of them do." Eagles fish for breakfast, bats eat mouthfuls of mosquitoes, squirrels busily gather acorns, and cougars quietly prowl through snow. Diane's delightful rhyming verses depict the diverse lives of two animals for each month of the year—one animal that's active for time during the day and another active at nighttime, for a total of 24 fascinating critters. Andrea gives her water color paintings a stylized flair by employing her own unique digital technique.
