The Scholastic Science Readers "TM" series was created espe cially to bring exciting nonfiction to beginning readers. Each book combines easy-to-read text with outstanding photographs to give kids an introduction to a favorite topic. With consultation from a reading specialist and child psychologist, the texts have been clearly leveled to match developing skills. Every book has been carefully reviewed by an expert in the field for scientific accuracy and includes an easy activity that a child can do for further exploration.Outstanding photography brings nature alive in these full-color books. "Take a Look" boxes give kids a special look at the inside of a wolf's den or a close-up of a bat's fur.In this introduction to these strong, beautiful animals, kids will learn dozens of facts about wolves -- how they hunt, travel in packs, communicate, and care for their pups. Readers will learn how wolves were once seriously endangered in the wild but are slowly reappearing thanks to new laws and programs like the Yellowstone reintroduction.
