Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

A winning formula for keying new and pre-readers into colors, sequences and nature.
School Library Journal
12/01/2014
PreS-Gr 1—Lap book editions (8.5" × 11") of two of this creative team's classic titles. The simple, repetitive texts encourage toddler interaction, and the bold iconic images are perfect for one-on-one and small group sharing. The first title features 10 North American animals, while the second spotlights 10 endangered or threatened species. Carle's gorgeous painted and cut-paper collages are enormously appealing and engaging.

Reading Group Guide

Discussion Questions

1. Read the first part of each new spread of the book that identifies the animal on that page. Ask your students how they know by looking what the animal is. What parts of the animal do they recognize? What is the animal doing that helps them to recognize it? Ask students to support their ideas with visual evidence from the pictures.

2. In some of the pictures we can see the animals in an environment (like the goat on rocks or the prairie dog digging in dirt). In pictures where an element of the environment is included ask students to describe it and make connections between what they see and what they know about the environment that animal lives in.

3. For pictures in which there is no environment depicted (like the flying squirrel or the blue heron) ask students what they know about the animal and where it lives. Then ask them to imagine the environment they might create for this animal. Eric Carle, the illustrator of this book, used very few clues to create the environment for the animals. Ask students what clues they would use.

4. Tell your students that Eric Carle creates animal images through collage--a process by which he pastes down paper in different shapes next to each other to form an animal. Before pasting the papers down on board, he paints them using tools like brushes, carpet or his fingers to create different textures. Tell students that texture is how something would feel if you could touch it. Ask students to look closely at the pictures and describe the textures they see. Ask older students if they can tell by looking how the texture was created. Have your students cut out different shapes and collage them into animals. Ask them to think about the shapes before they paste them onto the paper. What shape will make a good head for the animal they are making? What shapes will make good ears, etc.?

5. Each of the animals in the book is doing a different activity. Ask older students to come up with different verbs to describe what the animal might be doing (i.e. instead of "flying" the blue heron might be "soaring").
