Book cover Stripes of All Types New Review
Susan Stockdale (2013) , under 40 pages
Audience: Toddlers, Preschool, Primary (k-3rd grade)
Category: Concept, Non-Fiction
(This book has outstanding illustrations)


Why do so many animals in so many habitats have stripes? Some use them to hide so they can hunt their prey, some use stripes so the hunters can`t find them, and some use them to communicate. There are even animal stripes that we still don`t understand. This nonfiction picture book wonderfully shows the many stripes in the animal world and describes them with rhyming text. A matching game at the back of the book challenges you to name the striped animals you`ve seen. This is a book you will read again and again.

Book cover What If You Had Animal Teeth? New Review
Sandra Markle (2013) , under 40 pages
Illustrated by Howard McWilliam
Audience: Primary (k-3rd grade), Intermediate (4th-6th grade)
Category: Humor, Non-Fiction, Read Aloud
(This book has outstanding illustrations)


Wiggling a loose tooth can be awfully exciting. It means a new tooth is on the way! But what if you lose your two front teeth only to have rattlesnake fangs or elephant tusks replace them? Hippo teeth never need brushing, beaver teeth are always orange, and naked mole rat teeth work like chopsticks. This clever book is full of cool facts about teeth of different animals, while the illustrations show how your new animal teeth would look in your next school picture (just imagine a great big crocodile smile). The final pages of the book teach you how to care for your own choppers, just in case your new teeth happen to be human ones!
