Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Erika Clark
"A community is a place. It is also the group of living things that shares that place. Living things are plants, animals, and people. Prairie dogs are animals that live in communities. They live in communities to stay alive." Students explore how a prairie dog's lifestyle is not as different from their homes and families. They enjoy delectable flowers and grasses that grow on the land above their towns that are built underground. Babies are born into prairie dog families during the spring and are nursed by the warm milk from their mothers. When the pups are strong and healthy, they emerge above the soil to look for food on their own. Like many neighborhoods, prairie pups are looked after by a babysitter to ensure their safety. While other mother prairie dogs take turns babysitting a litter of pups, these female adults teach the pups to distinguish edible plants from those that are harmful. Like every community, both prairie dog and human, some adults watch over the town to protect it from invaders or dangerous intruders. In a prairie dog's town these trespassers are called predators, which prowl for small rodents to eat. These predators like hawks can swoop down from the sky, or like foxes sneak their way closer to the prairie dogs. This book is part of the "My World" series. Reviewer: Erika Clark
