Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
According to Greek mythology, a scorpion with a deadly sting defeated Orion, the hunter. A member of the arachnid class, the scorpion is also one of the signs of the zodiac. Learn how this creature survives against predators and other scorpions. Read about its history, habitat, diet, and life cycle. Examine the close-up, color photographs of different scorpions like the mother scorpion carrying her newborns. The photographs have captions that identify some of the different species. Three species are briefly described on a chart that covers three pages. The insets in the margins provide additional information. The last chapter describes the relationship between scorpions and people. Although people associate scorpions for their venomous sting, some readers may be fascinated by pet scorpions. Those children undertaking research may find the glossary, index, and list of resources (including websites) helpful in their quest for information. Scorpions is part of the "Animals Animals" series which features different animals. The books follow a similar format and would make a wonderful addition to a study unit about animals. An animal care consultant reviewed the contents of the text. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
