Animals in Winter (Let's-Read-And-Find-Out Science 1)

Read and find out about how animals cope with winter in this colorfully illustrated nonfiction picture book. This is a clear and appealing book for early elementary age kids, both at home and in the classroom. Introduce kids to basic science ideas as part of discussions about the seasons and animals. Have you ever seen a butterfly in the snow? Probably not. Butterflies can't survive cold weather, so when winter comes, many butterflies fly to warmer places. They migrate. Woodchucks don't like cold weather either, but they don't migrate; they hibernate. Woodchucks sleep in their dens all winter long. How do these and other animals handle the cold and snow of winter? Read and find out in the proven winner Animals in Winter! This is a Level 1 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out, which means the book explores introductory concepts perfect for children in the primary grades.

Books in this series support the Common Core Learning Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) standards. Let's-Read-and-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.

PreS-Gr 1--Originally published in 1963, this revised and updated series title adds even more allure to its nature lesson with a new full-color format and the inclusion of suggestions for easy ways to feed animals in winter. Davie's brightly colored paintings bring the revised text to life through the realistic portrayal of animals, birds, and butterflies in their natural habitats. In addition, the diagrams of the woodchuck's underground tunnels and illustrations showing a pika and bats asleep in their winter burrow and cave provide concrete examples of the term "hibernation." The rural neighborhood setting featuring houses, gardens, and two children on the first and last pages adds a note of familiarity. This brief, simple introduction to animal survival in winter contains just enough facts to satisfy youngsters' curiosity, and the attractive format makes learning fun.--Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH
