Take a trip to the Arctic with Baby Beluga. Pre-readers and beginning readers meet the adorable and playful baby beluga whale. The questions that kids will have for the baby beluga are answered simply and clearly by the baby whale himself. Young learners discover that baby belugas stay close to their mothers and live in large pods, they eat shrimp and fish and other sea creatures, and they can make many sounds like chirps, moos, whistles, and more. Hello, Baby Beluga is perfect for reading aloud at story hour and bed time. Patricia Wynne illustrates baby beluga's icy blue north Atlantic home and lets children get up close to these fascinating and friendly creatures.
This book is the record of a miracle. The metamorphosis of a tiny egg to a caterpiller, then to a chrysalis, and finally to a beautiful butterfly is one of nature's most astonishing miracles. The stunning pictures in this book - many taken with a microscopic lens - will guide you and your child or student to record and understand the progress of the miracle that takes place in your hands, with your own caterpillar/butterfly. More than 140 photographs capture rare sequences: the hatchling eating its way out of the egg; the first green meal moving through the caterpillar's intestines; and a caterpillar shedding its skin. Ample space for notes, drawings and progress charts encourage children to be scientists - and in the process, gain a profound appreciation for these remarkable tiny beings. The book includes 20 pages of teacher information, including answers to questions, charts, tips for teachers, and pages of resources.
