The Burgess Animal Book for Children
Thornton W. Burgess
Publisher: Digireads.com Publishing
Following the success of “The Burgess Bird Book for Children”, Thornton W. Burgess’ fans clamored for more, thus prompting the author to produce “The Burgess Animal Book for Children”, a work similar to its predecessor. In this work the author instead turns his attention to the four-legged animals that populate the natural landscape of North America. Whimsically told through a conversation between Old Mother Nature and Peter Rabbit, characters that fans of Burgess’ work will recognize from his other books, “The Burgess Animal Book for Children” is a delightful and educationally entertaining work of naturalism, beautifully illustrated by artist Louis Agassiz Fuertes. Originally published in 1920, “The Burgess Animal Book for Children” is a classic work that will not only enchant readers of all ages but just may inspire the inner naturalist in all who are so lucky to discover it. This edition includes a biographical afterword.
