Who loves blackberries? Everyone, at least until an unwanted guest turns up. An excellent book for young children to sound out fun words and learn something about wild animals that eat blackberries.

This easy riddle book celebrates each new baby animal's arrival using fun facts and visual cues to help young children guess which whose birthday is being celebrated.

Julie discovers where crystals come from, and how much the terminology used to describe their properties sounds like words used in our everyday lives, but means something very different! Fits right in to standard mineral studies for 4th grade students.
