From the itsy-bitsy ice worm to the petite starfish to the fluffy Arctic Fox, to giant cabbage to the huge napping walrus, with this book your child will learn to identify Alaskan animals by size, shape, name and trait. And everyone who reads this book will learn a little bit more about the amazing wildlife that calls Alaska home. Drawn in full-color this is a great book for any little itsy-bitsy one who wants to learn how to read, and identify things by size. It's also great for anyone who loves animals and is curious about Alaskan animals. About the Author: Lee Post is a cartoonist, who spent the last six years creating a funny, sarcastic weekly comic strip, Your Square Life, for The Anchorage Press, Anchorage's (Alaska) second largest newspaper. Seen by tens of thousands each week, during its run, his over 300 cartoons depicted life in Alaska in all its glory and weirdness. His artwork has appeared on the cover of numerous newspapers, in special exhibitions and world-wide in magazines as far away as South Africa (which is really far when you consider he lives in Alaska). His comic strip was even the inspiration for a play, 'The Simple Dating System'. He continues to churn out comics and observations at yoursquarelife.blogspot.com. When he's not doodling, he lives in Alaska with his lovely wife. They love to bike, hike, and enjoy the wonders of Alaska and the gooey goodness of the funnel cakes at Saturday Market.

Delightful book - beautiful drawings & color Dec 5, 2007
This is a delightful book for kids. It shows just about every Alaska animal and some that you rarely see like the illusive ice worm. The drawings are very cute and the color of each is really stunning. What I like about the book is that instead of just being an ABC book or a book listing animals, it's a book that teaches kids about sizes. Each animal is described as 'itsy bitsy or huge or very large,' etc. It's great for teaching little ones their animals and sizes. Very fun book.
