Take Along: Rabbits, Squirrels & Chipmunks; Boring, Mel
The popular Take-Along Guide series introduces children to “reading” who lives in a given environment by looking for clues.
This title describes 29 fascinating species. Children learn about jack rabbits that can escape predators by going from zero to 45 miles an hour in an instant or about the cliff chipmunk that escapes predators by jumping from heights, twirling its tail like a tiny helicopter until it lands softly. The activities featured include building “rabbit refuges” and making squirrel treats.
Children ages 5 to 10 will enjoy the creative activities and helpful identifications found in this beautifully illustrated and inquiry-oriented guide.
