Animals In Fall (Pebble Plus) Reviews

    The nonfiction book, "Animals in Fall Preparing for Winter" by Martha E. H. Rustad, informs the reader about various animals and how they prepare for winter. This book covers three main subjects about animals in the fall such as hibernation, a change in physical characteristics, or going south. This book would be perfect for children at a young age because the dialogue is very simple and to the point as well as the illustrations being very big and elaborate, which makes it easier for young children to follow along with the pictures instead of the writing. However, one of my favorite characteristics of this book is the interesting information that it provides. For example, I never knew that snakes hibernate together in caves in packs of a hundred or more during the winter and often return to that same den each year. It's this kind of trait that I find really essential in the making of a great book. The fiction book I twined with this nonfiction book is the, "Hibernation Station" by Michelle Meadows. This book pairs so nicely with "Animals in Fall Preparing for Winter" because they both cover the topic of animals in the fall and hibernation. I predict that a child could read "Hibernation Station" and would like to know more information about all the animals they ran across while reading this fiction book, as a result they would search for a nonfiction book such as "Animals in Fall Preparing for Winter" to quench their craving for knowledge. For example, a child might want to know how animals prepare for hibernation after reading this fiction tale, which is perfectly explained in "Animals in Fall Preparing for Winter."

    There are a number of things that make this series very good for both educational purposes and pleasure reading. First, the design is attractive and easy to follow. The organization works especially well for a teacher who wishes to cover certain aspects of fall in an orderly manner. I also appreciated the use of a table of contents, glossary, index, and additional resources. Each book also contains an activity that goes along with the information covered in each book. The second thing I like is the friendly and appealing illustrations. The illustrations are very child friendly. I also enjoyed the text which is simple enough for younger readers, but also includes side notes for readers who want more information. The text is written as a narrative which makes for a good read a loud. I highly recommend this series for all those that want to learn more about fall. I liked the fact that I learned some things from these books that I did not know previously. For example, I did not realize that when apple seeds are planted the apples they produce are not the same variety of apple as the seed that was planted. Lots of interesting things to learn in these books.

    Animals in Fall: Preparing for Winter is an upgraded version of Martha Rustad's Animals in Fall. By changing the real-life photos to illustrations and adding more details to the text, this book has been bumped up from a picture book to an easy reader. The illustrations added are colorful and eye catching while not taking away from the text. Added informational text boxes allow for parent participation in reading this book with their children. The child can read the simple text on each of the subjects, while the parent can add the information contained in these text boxes. Adding new animals, information, and even an activity in which children can see what it feels like to have blubber, have boosted this books enjoyment level.

    This non-fiction book is about animals and other species that reveal themselves more so in the fall than any other season. It talks about how the animals have distinctive fall colors and some, like the snowshoe hare, even changes colors to adapt to the season. The book is written in kid friendly language for young readers. The pages contain 1-2 sentences and the words are large print and have large spaces in between. This is an indication that this book can be used for guided or independent reading. The vivid photography could also be a great way to infer about what the text is about.

    Animals in Fall explains to children that when the weather turns cold animals get ready by either going south, sleeping or changing. The author defines the terms hibernation as sleeping through the cold weather, and migration as going south to warmer weather. Each of the three adaption modes is illustrated through delightful animal pictures. Recommended for younger children to introduce the fall season.

    The author has a previous book by a similar title. This one has different illustrations. I'm not sure if the text is the same or different.Discusses migration, hibernation and changes animals make to prepare for winter.

    Read this out loud with MA, class of 2024, helping me out. This was a good fit book for me, and I'm finding that nonfiction books are easier for me to read in Spanish than fiction.
