It’s early morning in an African desert. Suddenly, from a small hole in the sandy ground, a little meerkat appears. Then another and another pops out. Soon a whole family, or mob, of meerkats leaves its underground home. As the adult meerkats look for breakfast, some tiny pups play close to the burrow under the watchful eye of an adult. In Meerkat’s Burrow, kids will explore the underground and above-ground world of a meerkat family through clear text and large, full-color photos. Age-appropriate activities, such as imagining what it’s like inside the burrow, and critical-thinking questions give readers a chance to gain insights beyond the facts and figures. Fun information, such as the fact that meerkats dig special tunnels to dive into to escape predators, is sure to delight young readers.
