Featured Reviews

Little Killers by Sneed B. Collard III grabs the reader's attention with its text features--especially the great photographs. Each chapter showcases a tiny predator and how they use their adaptations to survive and live in the world. I can see this book becoming a mentor text for the fifth-grade nonfiction reading and writing units.

Little Killers is a spectacularly revolting and nightmare-inducing book that is sure to be a hit with kids. (I know this because currently my son's favorite book is called something along the lines of "Gross Things.") Not only is this book horrifying, but it's also educational and composed of strictly factual, non-fictional text. Glossary, index, and bibliography are all included for the librarians' pleasure. This book is sure to spend more time in backpacks than on elementary school library shelves.

Catchy headlines, snazzy fonts, and fascinating pictures pull you in as you learn all about predators from various phyla and class. Short reading segments make this more accessible to the less easily impressed student. Helpful pronunciation guides are given for complicated names. Glossary and index make searching this reference easier. Great reference text for upper elementary-middle school grades.
