Mrs. Gambel the Quirky QuailBook - 2012
Mrs. Gambel is a loving-yet-forgetful mother of seven. She takes wonderful care of her babies, but, as young readers will come to know, she does sometimes forget where she leaves them. "Now where did I leave my babies? Oh, there you are . . . come along dears." But how will Mrs. Gambel be able to keep an eye on all of her babies when they go on a trip to visit Aunt Flossy for a picnic? Influenced by a family vacation, this sweet story of a mother animal taking care of her own family will charm moms and kids alike while also introducing the Gambel's quail, native to the American Southwest.
