Naturalist and author Thornton W. Burgess uses his considerable storytelling abilities to bring to life this delightful introduction to zoology for young readers. Peter Rabbit is curious. He wants to know everything there is to know about the other animals in the forest. He pesters Old Mother Nature with so many questions that she agrees to hold a special school for all the animals so they can learn about each other. Infusing the book with his passion for conservation, Burgess has created an ideal medium to expose children to the wonder of the natural world.
