Reviews

NSTA

“As a classroom teacher, I was impressed with many aspects of this book, which is perfect for research reports because it has beautiful photographs and interesting morsels of information. . .this book has many excellent uses – as an easy read for a child, a great read-aloud for teachers to supplement a unit of study, an entertaining book to read independently, and/or a useful book for a research report for an early childhood reader.” —NSTA

School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

“These easy readers introduce distinctly different animals (some, such as pigeons, prairie dogs, and bats, are united in their ‘perceived pest’ status) in a fun way.” —School Library Journal

Besides researching and writing books, Judith also writes science news stories for Scholastic classroom magazines.As a former teacher, Judith loves visiting classrooms and libraries to share her stories as a writer/photographer and to help children learn to express themselves through poetry and prose.
