The Desert is Theirs 
by Byrd Baylor;  illustrated by Peter Parnall

A classic, Caldecott winning book that's been popular for more than three decades! You may think of the desert as a harsh, dry place where no one would ever want to live--but think again.  The Desert People know. So do the animals. Both love the land, and "share the feeling of being brothers in the desert, of being desert creatures together." Spare, poetic text and striking illustrations accentuate the sky, stone and sand of the desert in this haunting book.  It's a bit dated in its illustrations but still worth a read!
