With a Latin name that means “quill pig” and wearing a coat containing needle sharp quills, the porcupine is usually not what one thinks of as a cuddly animal. Unless, of course, one is a porcupine’s mother.
Just a little porcupup
With lots to learn as you grow up.
Like what to eat and where to hide,
So stick close to your mother’s side.
Budding naturalists and readers of all ages will enjoy learning about the north often seen but mighty fine porcupine. STEM- based back matter included photos and additional information.
