Mother West Wind's Children
Famed nature writer Thornton Burgess authored this charming collection of fifteen animal tales that generations of children have enjoyed since their 1911 publication.

These tales teach timeless lessons about wildlife ecology and respecting nature. This vintage edition retains the original illustrations by George Kerr. 131 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa
These charming short stories will be a worthwhile addition to any child's library. Each book is a collection of short stories focusing on one character. Every character has his gifts and weaknesses, and the enlightening stories tell of different lessons they learn. - Melissa
