Armadillos may look funny, move oh-so-slowly, and smell a little stinky but readers can learn how extraordinary they are in this Step 3 book!

Follows a female armadillo as she forages for food, builds a home, and prepares for the birth of her baby pups while learning quirky and cool facts about the amazing armadillo!
Step 3 Readers feature engaging characters in easy-to-follow plots about popular topics--for children who are ready to read on their own.
