Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Which animal existed before the dinosaurs? The shark! Since prehistoric times, this much-maligned and misunderstood fish has roamed the oceans of the world. Over 350 species exist, all with distinguishing features and names, like the hammerhead shark, whose head is shaped like a hammer; the cookie cutter shark, who bites out cookie-shaped chunks of flesh from its prey; and the great white shark, who will grow tens of thousands of teeth in its lifetime. Young readers will discover through vibrant photos and intriguing text that not all sharks are scary, and there is much more to them than you see in the movies.

Synopsis:

These are the latest titles in this popular series that introduces children to North American wildlife through color photographs and fascinating text. Young readers will be enchanted by America's smallest bird, the fearless hummingbird. Its resting heart rate is an astonishing 480 beats per minute and, unlike any other bird, it can fly backwards.

Few animals capture the imagination like wild horses. There are nearly 50,000 wild horses still roaming western North America. This book reveals their origins, their complex family systems, and how they live together off the land.

Synopsis:

Here is something to chew on. A shark can lose and replace over 30,000 teeth in its lifetime. That's just one of the amazing facts that award-winning children's author Diane Swanson writes about in this popular Welcome to the World title. The text and colorful photographs bring the underwater world of sharks to life. Stories of a shark that traveled from New York to Brazil and sharks that find their way through mazes will enthrall children. Young readers will learn what baby sharks are called, how fast sharks swim, and what kind of seafood they like.
