Free Printable Animal Habitats Coloring Pages from Jim Arnosky

Jim Arnosky has been a favorite author/ illustrator in our family for two decades. I remember our oldest daughter reading in her baby lisp from Arnosky's "Raccoons and Ripe Corn." She was five and making a story tape Christmas present for a brother. Since writing "Raccoons and Ripe Corn," Jim Arnosky has written and illustrated over 50 books about animals and nature.
