9780976626497: A Bold Carnivore: An Alphabet of Predators

This book offers a great way to teach children about the habits and the importance of a variety of predators. Booklist writes, "These lovely, detailed pages will intrigue children as well as teach them an important natural concept." With awards for design and scientific non-fiction, A Bold Carnivore is a must-have for children! Prey species are illustrated along the border. The book includes animals not normally considered predators, like robins and toads.

About the Author:

Consie Powell lives in an energy serlf-sufficient house with her husband and a family of Newfies near Ely, Minnesota. She is the author and/or illustrator of many children's books about the outdoors. You can learn more at her website.

From Publishers Weekly:

From the predictable alligator to the unexpected zapus (a meadow jumping mouse), the carnivores of this abecedary prowl, pounce, sniff and snatch their meals from nature's lively table. Twenty-six insects, mammals, fish and birds representing various North American habitats are each described in a few lines of text ("A damselfly dips and darts through the summer air, catching mosquitoes and midges...."). Powell's watercolor-and-ink illustrations separate the carnivores from their prey, who rest safely within boxed borders; the predators appear more as stuffed specimens than as full-blooded hunters. Though accurate, the text misfires with tired verbs that give no feel of the predators' instinct and cunning; it seems a misnomer to call these creatures "bold." A fine-print glossary, aimed at adult readers, identifies prey and geographical habitats. Ages 2-6.
