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.
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.
Backyard Habitats takes children on a journey through their own back yards and teaches them about the many living things that are leading fascinating lives all around them.
