About... Critters

by Lynn Ransford
with illustrations by the author

Grandma, Tell Me a Story... About Critters is the second volume in Lynn Ransford's delightful series of true stories intended for readers of all ages—the tales her grandchildren want to hear about over and over. (Go to Volume One)

Critters includes Lynn’s experiences as a school teacher committed to teaching kids about life science. You’ll learn how to feed a snake, about when she spilled a zillion baby crickets on the rug, and what happens when a stink bug is teased.

In this delightful book of stories you will read about Queenie the King Snake, Gus the Guinea Pig, Ted and Linoleum the Toads, rats, mice, moles, and raccoons, a tarantula, an octopus, and many other colorful animal characters along with funny, sometimes poignant, human adventures.

Lynn Ransford grew up on a farm amongst a variety of animals. There, a little like Beverly Cleary's Ramona, she often got into bits of trouble.

Now a retired teacher after 50 years in pre-school through University/Graduate level classrooms, Lynn writes the stories her students loved and the ones the grandchildren want to hear over and over. She has discovered that friends of all ages enjoy listening to these true tales.
