I don't think many children today are very familiar with prairie dogs... at least not in my "neck of the woods." I guess it all depends on where you live. However, they seem like kind of cool animals, so this book is definitely worth considering!
Let's Look at Prairie Dogs.
Summary from Barnes & Noble:
Introduces the physical characteristics, behavior, and habitat of the black-tailed prairie dog.
This factual book is presented in such a way that it won't be overwhelming to children who typically have a hard time reading and comprehending non-fiction! That's good news, especially if your child(ren) are like I was at a young age... I just could not get into the whole non-fiction scene. The photos provided definitely make the book fun to read as well! Although just one in the Animals Close-Up series, this book (and the series as a whole) would likely be a welcome addition to your bookshelves!
Activity to Use in Collaboration with this book:
- Activity Booklet from the Prairie Dog Coalition - great for children who are eager to learn even more after reading this book!
