What I liked:
Puffin is written by a conservation biologist, who shares his knowledge of this beautiful books in-depth picture book for children. Children are curious about this world we live in, and animals are one of the hot topics, usually about why, where, and how. Puffin gives you a chance to answer those questions in a fun book geared toward those curious young children in your life.
Final Verdict:
Martin tells a story about the puffins and what happens as they go through the seasons. How do they parent the babies and find food in the cold climate? Do they fly south for winter like other birds? How long do the babies stay babies? All these curious questions and more can be answered in this beautiful non-fiction book for children.
