Illustrated by Jenna Riggs

Little people learn about the big world with the Smithsonian!

Each board book focuses on a unique habitat, introducing youngsters to the animals that call each habitat home. From the jungle to the ocean, children can learn to identify animals and their habitats through bright photographs, clear labels, and simple facts.
