Meet Some of Nature’s Most Fascinating Critters
What do turtles and humans have in common? Why don’t jumping spiders need to look over their shoulders? Can squirrels really fly?
Each of the creatures appears against a white backdrop to showcase its colors, textures and shape with clarity and precision. Each photograph is accompanied by information, told from the critter’s perspective, to educate and entertain young readers. Kids who read this — or have it read to them –– learn a lot about the world around them and also gain new appreciation for Mother Nature’s clever strategies. Who knows? The child who enjoys Curious Critters may end up spending more time outdoors, laying the groundwork for a great career as a biologist or other nature explorer.
The animals describe where they live, how they behave, what they eat and other details of their lives, in language appropriate for four-to-eight-year-olds. To be as accurate as possible, while keeping the words easy for youngsters to grasp, the author investigated how teachers of very early grades deal with science.
