Growing Up Is Hard To Do Part 2


2023 NYC BBA Distinguished Favorite

Grumpy the Iguana, Green Parrot, Mr. Squirrel, and Little Mouse are enjoying a picnic in the park. Little Mouse wanders over to the dock to look at the fish in the marina. To his surprise, he sees a whale! Or is it? He runs back to the picnic to tell his friends, but it turns out to be a young manatee named Baby. Growing Up is Hard to Do (Part 2) is the continuation of Baby's story. In this story, Baby is learning how to find her way in the world on her own.
