From wasp's nests to webs, mole holes, termite mounds, and much more, Kingfisher Readers L2: Where Animals Live by Brenda Stones and Thea Feldman examines the many habitats and strategies animals use when making their homes. Familiar animals like foxes and swallows are joined by more exotic species like chimpanzees, polar bears, and penguins. Challenging vocabulary is highlighted throughout―burrow, den, migration―and the art and text weave together seamlessly to help readers put the words in context and develop increased confidence in their reading skills.
LEVEL 2: BEGINNING TO READ ALONE Simple and engaging, with plenty of interest and repetition. Vocabulary is easy and familiar, and sentences are mainly short and simple. Guided Reading Level: J

K-Gr 1-Designed for children learning to read on their own, these titles contain high-interest topics and ample visual elements with close-up, captioned photographs. In Where Animals Live, several creatures are introduced, ranging from penguins to spiders, with information on where they live, how they hunt, and where they sleep. In Where We Live, a variety of homes is explored, showcasing types, materials, and location. Readers are introduced to houses in towns, villages, the country, and even on the water. Each chapter is designed with simple headings, glossary in boldface type, and single- and double-page photographs. Both titles provide age-appropriate facts that are suitable for reports as well as for general-interest reading.-Melissa Smith, Royal Oak Public Library, MIα(c) Copyright 2011.
