From the Series Pull Ahead Books — Animals

The Horn Book Guide

“Pull Ahead Book Series. These small, square books discuss each animal’s habits and characteristics, how they find food, and how they raise their young. The limited text and many photos work well together, and though the books are very brief, each provides an adequate introduction for beginning readers. A habitat map and labeled picture are appended.” —The Horn Book Guide
