Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

From the predictable alligator to the unexpected zapus (a meadow jumping mouse), the carnivores of this abecedary prowl, pounce, sniff and snatch their meals from nature's lively table. Twenty-six insects, mammals, fish and birds representing various North American habitats are each described in a few lines of text ("A damselfly dips and darts through the summer air, catching mosquitoes and midges...."). Powell's watercolor-and-ink illustrations separate the carnivores from their prey, who rest safely within boxed borders; the predators appear more as stuffed specimens than as full-blooded hunters. Though accurate, the text misfires with tired verbs that give no feel of the predators' instinct and cunning; it seems a misnomer to call these creatures "bold." A fine-print glossary, aimed at adult readers, identifies prey and geographical habitats. Ages 2-6.

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3?A striking introduction to 26 predators. Each animal from alligator to zapus is depicted in its natural habitat. The surrounding smaller pictures feature its potential food supply. A glossary provides information on the range of the predator and lists the prey depicted. The stunning illustrations are worth admiring simply for their color and naturalistic detail. The fact that they convey so much information about ecological relationships enhances the book's value considerably. The serviceable, brief text summarizes each creature's feeding preferences, but the illustrations are what set the book apart and contribute to its worth as a valuable purchase.?Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, MN

Format: Paperback
You could choose to wait until preschool to teach the ABC's to your child, but it's not necessary with such great home teaching tools as this book. This is a great book for 2 to 6 year olds, to go beyond the usual A is for Apple and Z is for Zebra.
The layout of this book is one letter of the alphabet on the top of each page, both upper and lower case in the corners. An illustration of an animal dominates the middle, while sidebar illustrations of it's prey bracket like a frame. A few short lines of text on the bottom explain a little bit about the hunting habits of the animal. Example: Merganser. "A hungry merganser pops to the surface. Only fish, frogs or crayfish that hide carefully escape this diving duck."
A Bold Carnivore was given to my son at the age of 2. He was really more attracted to the illustrations of animals at that time, which are detailed and realistic. A child's mind retains information amazingly well at that age, and he was able to memorize the lines in short order.
We would point to the letters at the top of each page - one in upper case and one in lower - and name them as we went, then naming the animal pictured below. This was a great way of learning letters and associating each one with a specific animal. My 4 year old son now also knows twenty six obscure varieties of carnivores, what they eat and their habitats.

Format: Paperback
A fabulous way to connect the "A, b, c" with actual words - especially for my animal crazy four year old boy. He loves seeing the animal & what they eat, & enjoys telling me that Alligator starts with A, etc. It is only North American carnivores, so there were a couple even I didn't know (English Mum!), so we both learnt those together!
