Animal DefensesAnimal Defenses

Published July 1st 2017 by Norwood House Press
4 Stars

My review: This is a great beginning to read, non-fiction book. The pictures are large and visually appealing. The text is full of high frequency words and makes it easy to read for young readers as well as easy to understand if it is being read to them. The content words are listed at the back of the book, so could be introduced prior to reading. A great book for use in a primary classroom studying animals and how they protect themselves. I liked that the animals species in the book were varied and showed many different kinds of defenses from camouflage to use of skin and hide as well as animals that use teeth and claws. The information was presented in a very succinct way so children could remember things easily. I recommend this book to schools and primary classrooms as well as family libraries, especially if your children like animals and non-fiction books. As with other Mary Lindeen books, there are questions, facts, websites and books for further information and notes to parents. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.

My Review: This is a great beginning to read, non-fiction book. The pictures are large and visually appealing. The text is full of high frequency words and makes it easy to read for young readers as well as easy to understand if it is being read to them. The content words are listed at the back of the book, so could be introduced prior to reading. A great book for use in a primary classroom studying the environment and the 3Rs of how to help the planet by producing less garbage. I liked the reduce and reuse sections, but the recycle missed a great opportunity. It showed things made from recycled materials, but really didn’t discuss how and what to recycle. Recycling boxes were not even shown. The information was presented in a very succinct way so children could remember things easily. I recommend this book to schools and primary classrooms as well as family libraries, especially when learning about the environment and the problems with garbage. As with other Mary Lindeen books, there are questions, facts, websites and books for further information and notes to parents.
