WILD & WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY: Wolves
ABOUT THE BOOK
They run in packs, stalk their prey, and howl at the moon. And no matter where you are--they're always lurking somewhere nearby. Wolves, the predatory puppy dogs of the wild, are feared and loved by people everywhere. But are they misunderstood?
In this fascinating level 2 reader, you'll learn that there's much more to being a wolf than most people could ever believe. Did you know that each pack has a pecking order? That wolves can "talk" to each other using body language? Or that they're actually not out to attack humans, they usually leave people well enough alone? Full of incredible photographs and interesting information, NGR Wolves will appeal to all kids.
Wolves are a popular topic with children. Young readers can't help but want to know everything they can about their favorite animal. These National Geographic Readers are a great resource for these type of young readers. Not only are they well-written, sharing great factual information, but they have amazing photographs and a fabulous book design. I even learned some things reading this book. For example, I didn't know that there are more than thirty kinds of gray wolves.
