This is a fun compilation of poems around a water hole on the African grasslands. Each poem features a different animal, focusing first on whimsical language, and then on an informational paragraph. I enjoyed the illustrations which capture the rich colors of Africa and the features of each animal.
I loved the thick pages and beautiful illustrations in this sweet book about how animal parents teach their young. Questions that help young readers connect to the animal babies follow each description of lessons learned by baby chicks, joey kangaroos, prairie dog pups, baby cheetahs, etc. More animal facts are at the end. Kids will love this one!
Where do the ingredients come from that make up a peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Zany illustrations help young children understand the origins of everything that goes into one of our favorite treats. Working backward from the kitchen to the grocery store, delivery trucks, bakeries and factories, and farmer's fields, young children can learn about the factors of production.
