It’s nice to be a mountain lion lounging in a tree; going for a little prowl with lots to learn and see! This board book introduces babies and toddlers to a very adorable animal. Playful, rhyming text takes us through a day in the life of a cougar, supplemented by fun facts for parents to share with youngsters. With plenty of photographs to coo over, this new addition to the It’s Nice to Be series will charm children and parents alike.
