Children's Literature - Erika Clark
"Do you have hamsters living in your house, or is your pet rodent a cute little mouse?" This is a book with interesting facts and basic information about different types of rodents. Whether the student lives in an urban environment or in a country setting, he or she will learn many names for these furry or prickly animals. The groundhog walks the damp cold earth as the golden sun reflects off his marble shaped eyes looking up at the tall towering trees. The beaver threshes through the swampy waters, using his four sharp teeth to carry wood to build a home for his family. High in the sky—away from predators—porcupines spend most of their time on tree branches. When in danger, a porcupine will shoot out quills from his bumpy back as a natural bodily weapon. The squirrel can jump, leap, and run from the ground to the tree tops with his caramel and cream colored cheeks filled with food to eat later. Students learn about the every day life of a rodent, while enjoying the style of the text and realistic photography. This book is part of the "My World" series. Reviewer: Erika Clark
