armadilloAn armadillo gives birth to four female babies in Texas, and we follow their fate as they confront dangers growing up and as they slowly migrate northward toward Kansas, become independent, and find new homes of their own.  Written with a scientific approach, the text is authoritative in its facts, while the illustrations give a sense of the wilderness and encounters with humans from the armadillo’s perspective.  An afterwords gives more scientific information on the armadillo and its migrating pattern in the United States.
