Great Reads from Great Places

"Crossings: Extraordinary Structures for Extraordinary Animals" by Katy S. Duffield

Age: 3-8 years

In a world where bridges, tunnels and highways are constantly being built to help people get from one place to another, groups of concerned citizens, scientists, engineers and construction crews have come together to save the animals whose habitats are disturbed in the process. “Crossings: Extraordinary Structures for Extraordinary Animals” (Beach Lane) explores wildlife crossings around the world and how they are helping to save thousands of animals every day.

Katy S. Duffield was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, and lived there all her life until recently moving to Florida. She is the author of more than 25 children’s books.
