Kick off Fall with some NEW educational animal books from Arbordale Publishing! Their books are some of my girls’ favorites and we always get excited when they release new ones! They are educational and entertaining at the same time!
One winter day, Braden and Finley hike into the woods with their wildlife scientist dad and his team to tag a mamma bear who just had cubs. The tag makes it easy to find the mamma bear in the summer when the team gets a call about an orphaned bear cub that needs a new family. But will the mama bear adopt this new cub as one of her own? The story is based on orphaned black bear cub rescue efforts by Michigan DNR.
Baby Bear’s Adoption is a fictional story about helping get an orphaned baby bear cub to be adopted by a Mama Bear and her two cubs. I had no idea how that process worked until I read this book and it is fascinating! All the facts are accurate but it is blended with a fictional story that children will enjoy. Wildlife scientists sure do have interesting jobs!
Cheetahs are the most rapidly vanishing cat in Africa. Share the dreams of a bright future for cheetahs while engaging sidebars provide a wealth of natural history information. From cleat-like feet to tear-marked faces, these majestic cats are well adapted to life on the African plains. The fierce predators sprint after their prey at high-speed, an exhausting dash that leaves them ready for a nap! This rhythmic text will lull readers into cheetah dreams of their own.
Cheetah Dreams gives the reader a glimpse into the life of a cheetah. We learn a lot about them including the fact they hunt during the day and their cubs stay with them for two years. They are a fascinating animal and one way to help them out is to spread the word about the importance of cheetahs and how they are the most rapidly vanishing cat in Africa. A perfect book for getting children interested in conservation.
Come along on a journey through the aquatic habitat of a forested wetland. Meet birds and bobcats, along with the beavers and beetles that call the soggy forest home. Kevin Kurtz continues his award-winning “A Day In” series, and once again delights readers with a rhythmic, nonfiction look into a typical day for the animals that live in this wet habitat.
A Day in a Forest Wetland is one where you get to go on a rhythmic journey through a habitat full of animals that spend their time hunting for their next meal. Wetlands have always fascinated me, probably because I live in Florida where there are protected wetlands. This book is great to introduce children about all those animals that are living the circle of life within the wet habitat.
Quick, name the world’s fastest animal! Did you say cheetah? If so, you’re right – sort of. Sure, the cheetah can reach speeds over 70 miles per hour (mph); but did you know that there is a species of bird that can fly faster than a race car? Did you know that that’s not even the fastest animal there is? This “dashing dozen” of nature’s speediest species examines the fastest on land, air, and sea. This story will resonate with children taking standardized tests…one size does not fit all!
Which Animal is Fastest? is an extremely interesting book that shows readers that different animals can be fast at different things. There is the short distance runner, long distance runner, the fastest flyer…and so many more! A book showcasing the fastest animals on the planet…including the one with the fastest tongue!
Arbordale books always come with a “For Creative Minds” section in the back of the book with tons of additional information about the book topic and online you can find a cross-curricular teaching activity guide available for printing. You can also get these titles in Spanish as well as digital formats including dual-language and interactive books. These awesome educational books help encourage kids to learn more about animals.
