Where does a chipmunk sleep? What does an eagle feed its young? How do mother bats find their babies in a cave? In ANIMAL SECRETS, families learned the answers to these questions and more as they explored the hidden habitats and secret lives of forest animals. Using imaginative role-play and hands-on activities, children discovered nature from an animal's point of view in naturalistic environments.
