Peachtree Publishing Company
Ages 2-6

Line Up for a fun and fascinating exploration of animal behavior! Much like people, many animals line up for a variety of reasons. You might have to get in line for the school bus or recess, but these animals have other motives:

  •  Arctic wolves follow the prints in the snow left by their pack leader to conserve energy.
  •  Flamingos form a line to reduce wind resistance and fly more efficiently.
  •  Ants line up to follow the scent of their leader to food and safety.

Featuring animals from around the world, Line Up! Animals in Remarkable Rows is a cozy and comforting book that reminds us of our similarities while illuminating some specific, distinctive behaviors. Back matter offers additional information on the animals featured.

Here's a 2023 Gaithersburg Book Festival interview with me about the book.
