A celebration of pattern and color, Susan Stockdale's illustrations focus on the diversity of Earth's flora and fauna. The author and illustrator of six children's books, Stockdale grew up in Florida and spent part of her childhood in Ireland; both places inspired her love of nature. The twelve colorful illustrations in this calendar, depicting animals in their natural habitats, are from Stockdale's books Bring On the Birds; Carry Me! Animal Babies on the Move; Fabulous Fishes; and Nature's Paintbrush. Each image is paired with a brief description of the animal's behavior and native range.
