PreSchool-Grade 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

Ages 3^-6. This revised edition of an easy-reading title in the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series begins with an Asian American girl and boy in a country neighborhood in the fall. Then the simple text and full-color illustrations show how various animals in that place prepare for winter. Some birds and insects migrate. Bats and woodchucks hibernate. Squirrels gather food and store it. Some don't prepare for winter at all; they must hunt for food all day long. There are some easy practical suggestions for helping animals in winter. A final picture shows the children looking forward to spring. The words are immediate ("His heart beats slowly. He sleeps, sleeps, sleeps. He hibernates"), and the clear, active illustrations will draw new readers to a popular subject.

This is a National Geographic book which makes it a really nice 'younger' Science book. It's a storybook but more like a Science textbook but not in a boring way. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Rosa Cline
The book and illustrations are nice, but the editing is awful. There are at least 2 spots where a "t" is used instead of an "r," so in a Stage One Reader it says... Read morePublished 7 months ago by Kyle Lehman
