There are lots of things Little Badger can do that Old Badger can't manage to do very well anymore. But Old Badger can still show Little Badger a few tricks to teach him how to become a badger extraordinaire--like how to catch fish, where to find worms, and how to get to the honey before the bees get to you. Old badgers are supposed to teach little badgers, he says. It's all part of the plan--and so is nap time! •The first book in a new character-based picture book series from an award-winning author •Children's Book-of-the-Month Club Selection •An intergenerational story with classic appeal for children, parents, and grandparents
