Curious Critters Michigan

David FitzSimmons. Wild Iris (IPG, dist.), $7.95 (24p) ISBN 978-1-936607-31-0
Readers living in or visiting the Great Lakes State can get a sense of 16 animals they might see there in this regional spin-off of FitzSimmons’s picture book series. As in his earlier titles, FitzSimmons’s crisp, up-close nature photography is at the center of this book, offering detailed portraits of a painted turtle, cardinal, milk snake, opossum, and more. Brief, repeating text encourages readers to look or listen for the animals (of a wood thrush: “Listen for me singing Eee-oh-lay! throughout forests in Michigan”), and the white backdrops keep the focus on the delicate details of their fur, feathers, and other features. Simultaneously available: Curious Critters Ohio. Up to age 4. (Sept.)
