Omaha Public Schools - Regina Loehr

"This book introduces young children to how a variety of animals use certain features unique to the animal for survival. An example on page six would be a giraffe having a long neck to reach the leaves in a tree. A table of contents, index, and glossary are included within the pages of this book. There is a short quiz including the answers in the back of the book.Using text features on each page each animal and animal parts are clearly labeled. After reading the book, the suggestions on the last page of this book: "Pass around some pictures of animals with different body parts. Tell the children to go back to their seats with a partner and sort their animals into different body part groups." This could be done in the classroom setting. What a great way for a teacher to use this book! The beautiful pictures of the animals many in their natural habitat and fully illustrated cover would attract and keep the interests of many young children.Significant feature: On page seven, this book introduces the concept of prey and predator to young children in a peaceful way so that young animal lovers would not get too upset over the idea of animals eating another animal for survival. –Regina Loehr, Florence School Omaha Public Schools 1/22/2013" - Omaha Public Schools
