Trumpeter Swan: The World's Largest Waterbird

Leon Gray (author)

Publisher: Bearport Publishing ISBN: 9781617727849

How big are trumpeter swans? With their wings stretched out, they are about as long as an 8-foot (2.4-m) rowboat! These large waterbirds live in North America and make their homes near lakes and ponds. Because of their huge size, trumpeter swans can fight off almost any predator. Get too close to a swan, and you'll hear the loud honking sound that makes it clear how this big bird got its name. In Trumpeter Swan: The World's Largest Waterbird, eye-popping color photos paired with simple, grade-appropriate text will engage children as they learn about the natural habitat, physical characteristics, diet, life cycle, and behavior of this supersized animal. A comparison diagram is also included to show readers the animal in relation to a familiar object.

Ringtail: Miner's Cat

Joyce Markovics (author)

Publisher: Bearport Publishing ISBN: 9781617726125

Ringtails are small mammals that are sometimes called "miner's cats." They got their nickname in the 1800s, when miners in California and Arizona kept them as pets because they were so good at catching mice! Today, ringtails live in the wild throughout the Midwest and western United States, but people rarely see them. Ringtails are solitary animals that avoid people, and they are active at night, when most people are asleep. In Ringtail: Miner's Cat, kids go on a real-life adventure with biology professor David Wyatt as he tracks ringtails in an area of California called Sutter Buttes. Along the way, children will discover this fascinating animal's diet, behavior, habitat, and physical characteristics. Large, full?color photos and a dramatic narrative format will keep readers turning the pages. Ringtail: Miner's Cat is part of Bearport's America's Hidden Animal Treasures series.
