Running Wild

A wild animal board book

How do you like to move? Do you like to swim like a sea lion, prance like a deer, slither like a snake, or crawl like a turtle? In this board book, photographs of wild animals go hand-in-hand with text that encourages youngsters to skip, dash, dive, and run through the natural world.
