Children love to read about different kinds of animal families. In this fascinating new book, simple text explains how animals behave toward their young in different and sometimes surprising ways, from fish and reptile mothers who leave their young to fend for themselves to male wolves and penguins who help raise their babies. Engaging photographs also show how mammal mothers teach their young survival skills and how some animals live together in groups.
This delightful new book shows the exciting changes some animals go through as they grow up. Children will learn how some animals are born live, and others hatch from eggs. Then, as living things, all animals grow and change. Close up images show how some animals grow bigger and look the same while some go through metamorphosis and change into something different.
This colorful new book looks at how different kinds of animals make homes in their habitats. Children will discover why animals and plants are suited to the places in which they live. Amazing photographs show animals that live in hot or cold temperatures, as well as animals that live high up in the trees, on the ground, or underneath the earth.
Backyard animals are the most familiar to children. This engaging book will get your students to answer these questions: which animals do you come into contact with most?; which of these animals have wings?; which ones burrow into the ground?; which ones live in the trees? Meet some common backyard residents such as birds, butterflies, raccoons, squirrels, bees, skunks, and frogs, and occasional visitors such as bats, deer, and coyotes.
The bodies of living things are made up mostly of water. This fascinating new book shows young children why all plants, animals, and people need water to grow and survive. Interesting photographs feature animals and plants living in water - frogs and fish laying their eggs in water, and land animals using water to cool off and keep clean.
All living things need food to survive, but not all living things eat the same kinds of food. From plants to herbivores to carnivores, the bodies of living things are specially designed to find the types of food they need. Children will be amazed by such food-gathering techniques as camouflage, echolocation, pouncing, trapping, poisoning, and using tools.
This wonderful new book explains in a simple way why people are living things. We need sunshine, air, water, and food. We grow and change. We need places to live. Young children will be amazed to learn that, as living things, they share many similarities with plants and animals.
