Stewart Beneath the SunAs you explore a variety of habitats on a hot day you learn what some animals do in order to stay cool. Watercolor illustrations accompany this story about keeping cool on a hot day. This will appeal to early readers and could be paired with a habitat unit in the classroom or for early report writing.

March 2015 review by Patty Dodson.

[Editor’s note: Realistic watercolor illustrations and simple, informative text introduce young children to a variety of animal adaptations to summer heat in four different habitats: fields, deserts, wetlands, and seashore. ]
