A koala rests comfortably in an Australian eucalyptus forest, penguin families gather on icebergs of Antarctica, and an elf owl peeks out of its nest in a saguaro cactus, its home in the Arizona desert. These captivating real-life images of Peaceful Moments in the Wild: Animals and Their Homes, taken by some of the world’s leading wildlife photographers, introduce young children to the diversity of animal habitats around the world. Whether they are pictures of general regions, such as the savannah or the rainforest, or of specific homes such as a cave or a beehive, young children will begin to learn that all living creatures—animals and humans—live in special places they call home.
