Answer the call of the animals in Terrie Stadler’s “Who’s Knocking at My Door?”

“Who’s Knocking at My Door?” (ReadersMagnet; 2021) by Terrie Stadler is a children’s book about the various birds and water life living around a pond in a rural setting. It is a “Country Pond Tale,” revolving around a pond that teems with aquatic life, such as blue tilapia, minnows, and turtles. 

“This story is based on an actual event when an unsuspecting visitor came to our door,” the author said about the inspiration for “Who’s Knocking at My Door?” “Based on this incident I decided to write a story about this most unusual experience.

“This is all happening in South Florida and there is a true and unusual ending concerning one of those animals which actually inspired the writing of this book. An unsuspecting visitor came to our door. This was a most unbelievable experience. It seemed like quite an opportunity to introduce a whimsical, imaginable story that children can relate to from the perspective of nature and what is possible.” 

Stadler said her book “Who’s Knocking at My Door?” helps foster children’s love of nature and appreciation of animals, regardless of size. “It tells how small animals can choose to relate to us and maybe invite us into their lives,” said Stadler. “We can also show how these animals can talk to us while bringing messages to their friends.” This is also an illustrated book that aims to spark children’s curiosity about nature as children can explore their own imagination in such settings.
