Pub. Date:
Each book in this series describes the life of an animal during a specific season of the year. Written in a quasi-fictional style, but based on actual animal behavior, these stories are richly illustrated with wildlife details from the four seasons of the year. Each story has an element of suspense by depicting an adventure or crisis in the animal's life. The books include a series of animals for the young reader to search for, thereby enhancing retention of information. A simple suggested project ends each volume.

The story opens on a warm, golden autumn day. It is getting harder for animals like the young heron to find food. Then with fresh earth being tossed up, we meet Digger, the mole. She is hungry from having worked so hard on the new tunnel, so she eats an earthworm. Heavy rains bring the river to the flood level. Digger is almost trapped in her tunnel by this rush of water. The rest of Digger's story is realistically and excitingly told.
