Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
One of six in the "All About Fall" series, this colorful book uses large photos, minimum text and repetition of words and phrases to support emergent readers. The story discusses what various kinds of animals do to prepare for winter, whether it is storing food, migrating to another place, or changing the way they disguise themselves. Kids can be encouraged to watch squirrels as they carry nuts in their cheeks and bury them in the ground to eat later when food becomes more scare in the winter. The book supports National Science Foundation standards for elementary students earth and life science studies. A glossary, an index, word count, and sources for further study plus safe Internet sites are included. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.

They wear shirts and pants stuffed with yellow straw." Animals features engaging images of a bear, squirrels, bees, and other animals affected by the changing season.
