Welcome, welcome, to the Cactus Hotel.

Many desert animals make holes and nests on the great arms of this giant cactus. Spring time is extra busy when the flowers bloom. This is the season for sweet nectar, fluffy pollen, juicy red fruit, and shiny black seeds. Yummm!

With simplified text and new illustrations, this board book allows the youngest child to enjoy and understand the helpful connections between the Cactus Hotel and those beautiful, busy and varied guests.

A new generation of little ones will become immersed in this nonfiction board book about desert wildlife.
