Come to Swan Harbor and discover acrobatic dragonflies, ancient lobsters, and sweet-smelling sea roses. Travel through the seasons to count baby robins as they wait for their springtime dinner and monarch butterflies as they rest during their autumn journey south. Young children will delight in counting the familiar and not-so-familiar flora and fauna of Swan Harbor, while older children will add to their store of intriguing nature facts.

Laura Rankin's own Maine countryside provided the inspiration and research for this beautiful fictional harbor. At once a nature guide, a counting book, and a puzzle, Swan Harbor is first and foremost an exquisite work of art.
