That's Wild!
Bite-sized articles for critter-crazy kids

Published 2015 by Julie Murphy in Melbourne, Australia .
Written in English.

About the Book

There’s a big, wild world out there, and this collection of short articles about animals introduces primary school-aged children to it in easy, “bite-sized” chunks.

Each article has a guide to indicate ease of reading (based on ATOS statistical scores). Activities, Fun Facts and internet links provide further opportunities for exploration, to inspire kids to further learning. It might just help busy parents and teachers too!

This book has something for everyone: from camouflage to communication, freaky behaviour to finding food, and seriously weird animal names to a wacky dating technique involving the colour blue. We’ve got wildlife, pets, farm animals and zoos covered.

So what are you waiting for? Wriggle, dig, fly, crawl or dive in and go wild!
