Description
A naturalist who has written more than 90 books for children, Jim Arnosky lends his delightful animal illustrations to this tale for readers 4 to 7 about a young burro who is nervous about moving to a new place. Little Burro's home canyon in Arizona has everything she needs—it's breezy and cool on a hot day, and warm and cozy at night. But one day, her band of wild burros decides to travel to the lake. She does not want to go; she only follows when her mother calls for her to come. But when they arrive, Little Burro is surprised to find that the lake is a wonderful place—and when it's time to return home, Little Burro again doesn't want to go.

"Arnosky has created a relatable protagonist with personality to spare, without relying on anthropomorphized characterization. His understated, compelling narrative offers a great read-aloud choice that will work just as well, if not better, one-on-one; the story naturally lends itself to a discussion of desert flora and fauna. Acrylic and white chalk illustrations reflect the habitat's sweeping, ever-changing beauty. The pictures have subtly shifting color schemes that follow Little Burro's adventures throughout the day, emphasizing the muted khakis, ambers, teals, greens, and purples of the landscape. Arnosky's careful attention to the vibrant detail found in natural settings will delight fans of his previous work, including Raccoon on His Own (2001) and Otters Under Water (1992, both Putnam). Eagle-eyed readers will particularly enjoy following the diminutive pair of ruby-throated hummingbirds that accompany Little Burro on each page of her journey."—School Library Journal
