Children's LiteratureDo you want to learn how to build a bird blind? Or "collect" animal tracks using flour, peanut butter and a metal cookie sheet? You can find out how to do all of this and more in this informative and entertaining book about animals that live all around you—even in your own backyard! Written by a former editor of children's science books who holds academic degrees in biology, science and environmental journalism, this book encourages young readers to learn about animals just like scientists do—observe, take notes, make comparisons and carry out simple experiments. And tells them to do so with respect and care for the living creatures that share our world. Full color photographs illustrate almost every page. The "To Find Out More" page lists books, places to visit and the publisher's website which can be used to track down more information on animals. An excellent addition to classroom and school libraries and a book that parents and younger kids will have fun sharing. 2004, Compass Point Books, Ages 6 to 8.
