New Scorpion Book and Scorpion Puppet

We just found a great book to go with our new Folkmanis scorpion puppet that came in this week. Scorpion book for kids by Anita Ganeri is a softcover book with color illustrations that will be great for the 5 or 6 year old boy (or girl) that loves creepy crawly things.  The book has lots of information about the day and night life of the scorpion that lives in deserts.
