Coyote Moon by Maria Gianferrari illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline

The illustrations are stunning!
Readers participate with a mother coyote and her hunt at night so she can feed her pups. The setting is in the suburbs!
Excellent word choice (examples: arches, swooping, sentinels, trots, slides, crouches, scuttles, lurks, skittering etc.)
Some figurative language included.
Teaching: I would use this book to model how strong verbs make a huge impact on the quality of writing.
-Borrowed from the library.
