Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

In this counting/calendar book dedicated to dogs' distant cousins, debut picture book author Cohn along with Detwiler (The First Teddy Bear) concentrate on personality and ambience, reserving facts and insights for a closing instructional guide. Cohn makes use of rhyming couplets, with a structured, repeating form that emphasizes the progressing months and increasing numbers. In February, two wolves enjoy a snowy frolic "deep in the woods where the harsh winds blow"; May brings the birth of five "fuzzy pups, funny pups" who "sniff and stare"; and September finds a pack of nine putting their natural camouflage to use among the brilliant foliage (and giving readers an opportunity to pick them out). Detwiler invokes just the right amount of romanticism: her wolves tussle in the purple rays of a frigid sunrise and dance, silhouetted, in the falling shadows of twilight-but they're always unmistakably wild. Readers should be captivated by the animals' resilient joie de vivre as well as by their habitats' seasonal glories. The educational guide offers wolf facts, activities and details about their life cycle. Ages 4-8. (Feb.)

PreS-Gr 4

A year in the life of wolves is told through verse in this beautifully illustrated picture book. Readers and listeners will be completely engaged in the rhythm of the poetry, which conveys the movement and habits of wolves. "Five wolves peek at a bright May sunbeam-/fuzzy pups, funny pups, sniff and stare./Five wolves peek at a bright May sunbeam/deep in the woods in the fresh spring air." Realistic art shows their movements, both active and sedentary. Young listeners will be able to complete rhyming sentences as the book is read and understand the use of alliteration. Useful for counting, as well as learning about the animals, seasons of the year, and poetry, this book may be enjoyed by beginning readers as well as researchers. "Wolf Fun Facts," "Wolf Life Cycle," "Wolf Calendar Activity," information about hunting and endangered wolves, and a Web site with reproducible activities are included. Students will want to read Jean Craighead George's The Wolves Are Back (Dutton, 2008) and Gail Gibbons's Wolves (Holiday House, 1994) for additional material.-Nancy Baumann, Indian Paintbrush Elementary, Laramie, WY

    A One Wolf Howling Educational Book

    My Review: I love the educational rhyming of this book that uses the months of the year and the numbers 1 through 12 to introduce children to the behavior of wolves in their natural environment. The story begins with one wolf who howls in the January moonlight and two wolves playing in February¿s snowfall month to 12 wolves singing a December chorus.

    It also provides 5 pages of educational facts and activities.

    Wolf Communications Matching Activity
    Wolf Fun Facts
    Wolf Life Cycle
    Wolf Calendar Activity
    Hunting
    Endangered Wolves

    The realistic illustration by Susan Detwiler brings the book to life with the warm and cool colors.




    FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.

    fun facts about wolves

    What do you know about wolves? Most people would recognize them and understand that they are relatives of the domesticated dog, but there are many aspects in which the wolf remains a mysterious creature. Scotti Cohn's gentle poetic text tells how one wolf howls in the January moonlight, two wolves play in a February snowfall, three wolves bark on a brisk March morning, and so on. Can you guess how many wolves sing a December chorus? The luscious, full-color drawings by Susan Detwiler which accompany are a feast for the eyes. One thing that makes Sylvan Dell books so great is that they are aligned to state standards in math and science. Thus, they are not only fun and enjoyable to read, but also educational at the same time.
    The "For Creative Minds" educational section at the end of the book, which may be photocopied or printed from Sylvan Dell's website by the owner of the book for educational, non-commercial uses, includes a Wolf Communications Matching Activity, Fun Facts about wolves and their life cycle, a Wolf Calendar Activity, and information about hunting and endangered wolves. Besides the knowledge concerning wolves, additional benefits for very young children in having this book read to them are counting from one to twelve and becoming familiar with the months of the year. Cross-curricular "Teaching activities," interactive quizzes, and much more are available online at the Sylvan Dell website. One Wolf Howls will delight all youngsters, especially those who like to learn about nature.
