There are lots of babies in the bayou, and even though they might have sharp white teeth, hard shells, webbed feet, or quick claws, their mothers still need to watch over them and protect them from harm. The babies learn how to dig, and swim, and follow their alert mothers’ lead.

Children will fall under the bayou’s spell as they learn about a new world in this lyrically charming book by one of our most respected naturalists. As he’s done so masterfully with other animals and environments, Arnosky presents an intimate look at an unusual and rich habitat.

"Transports children to a distinctive habitat that most will never see." - Booklist, starred review
