When it comes to animals, the fluffy, the handsome, and the strong get all the attention. But children have every reason to love the critters that scuttle, slither, buzz, and sting. Through lively, witty rhymes and warm, friendly illustrations, naturalist and author Diane Lang and artist Lauren Gallegos take children on a guided tour of the animals that do so many good things for us, yet don’t get enough love, from skunks to vampire bats. Published fall of 2012, it has proved a big hit at nature centers, children’s museums, and schools.

Read an Excerpt
They scuttle, slither, buzz, and crawl;
They get no praise or love at all,
But is there someone who will send
A note that says, "You have a friend”?
