Item Description

This book bundle contains 5 books.

1.Fifty on the Zebra:

Are you ready to embark on a wild counting caper? Imagine... eleven oysters at the opera, eighteen dalmatians dressed in diamonds, and twelve ladybugs shopping in the market! Meet an unforgettable host of zany creatures in this delightful bilingual counting book.

Readers will encounter concepts such as color, time, size, shapes, and more as they answer questions relating to colorful cut-paper illustrations. Nancy María Grande Tabor's concise and direct questions encourage thinking while her charming characters entertain. In both Spanish and English, this unique counting book challenges children to learn new vocabulary while reviewing counting and fundamental concepts.

2. Animals Black and White:

Phyllis Limbacher Tildes deftly delivers the pieces to put together these pattern puzzles. First take a peek at each black-and-white animal and read a short clue. Can you guess who it is? Turn the page and the answer is revealed in vivid color. Animal facts are included at the end.

3. What's For Dinner? Quirky, Squirmy Poems From the Animal World:

What in nature could be more poetic than the hunt for food and the struggle for survival? In twenty-nine poems readers will squirm at the realities of how the animal world catches food, eats it, and becomes dinner in turn. In these quirky poems readers are introduced to many animals with disgusting eating habits, such as the marabou stork that lurks on the periphery, like a vampire in the shadows, waiting for a chance to pick at a rotting carcass. The dermestid beetle does not mind doing the dirty work, cleaning up animals on the road side and often made busy at museums cleaning up bones for exhibits. And, baby wasps hatch inside an unsuspecting caterpillar and eat their way out.

Gross, cool, and extremely funny, David Clark’s illustrations get to the heart (and skin and guts) of the food chain and the web of life, depicting the animal world at dinner time in all its gory glory. Back matter includes further information about the animals in the poems and the scientific terms used.

4. Feathers: Not Just for Flying

Young naturalists explore sixteen birds in this elegant introduction to the many, remarkable uses of feathers. A concise main text highlights how feathers are not just for flying. More curious readers are invited to dig deeper with informative sidebars that underscore how feathers of all shapes and sizes help birds with warming or cooling, protect them from the sun, help them swim, glide or even dig. With a range of common and exotic species readers will be engaged by both the new and the familiar. Beautiful and delicate watercolor illustrations showcase life-size feathers and compare them to everyday objects. With a scrapbook design, Feathers is part science journal, part read-along nonfiction, making it a wonderful resource for nature studies and a delight for the youngest bird lovers.
