An introduction to earthquakes and animals native to California, this cheerfully illustrated and humorous tale teaches young children about some of nature's creatures and the cause of earthquakes. The crow, grizzly bear, king snake, mountain lion, and tule elk experience an earthquake and then discuss what happened. Finally, the wise condor, who has seen a few things in his long life, explains the true cause of earthquakes and the animals return to their respective habitats.
"THE CROW AND THE EARTHQUAKE addresses a natural phenomenon rarely discussed in children's literature . . . This book is as informative as it is entertaining." —Peter White, author, The Farallon Islands: Sentinels of the Golden Gate
