About this title


Scorpions protect themselves with stingers. While many are painful but not deadly to humans, some, like the deathstalker scorpion, can deliver a fatal sting. Fast facts and full-color photographs bring this eight-legged, nocturnal animal to life in the hands on any young reader. Even the most reluctant readers will be eager to read this book from cover to cover.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2-5-Kids have a continuing fascination with dangerous animals, so this series is sure to find an audience. In each title, students learn about the subject's habitat, physical characteristics (with special focus on teeth or other frightening features), diet, family life, growth, predators, and relationship with people. A typical layout consists of two paragraphs of text accompanied by one or two large color photos with captions. A spread of "Scary Facts" (e.g., "Anacondas have been known to eat jaguars") midway through every volume is ideal for quick sharing or booktalking. Though the headings of each section are rendered in a font reminiscent of a horror movie poster, the texts are surprisingly tame, and there is enough information for report writers as well as browsers. α(c) Copyright 2011.
