Join award-winning science writer Seymour Simon in this picture book introduction to the leader of the pack: wolves! This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 6 to 8. It’s a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children.

Wolves are much more than big, bad animals that prey on other animals. Did you know that wolves…

  • are like dogs—they are loyal, affectionate, and highly intelligent.
  • live in packs—or families—led by the strongest female and male.
  • are friendly with one another: They play games, bring food to one another, and even babysit one another's cubs!

With clear, simple text and stunning full-color photographs, readers will learn all about wolves—their behavior and habitat—in this informative picture book!

Perfect for young scientists’ school reports, this book supports the Common Core State Standards.
