These animal story books are a perfect compliment to the second grade Animal Fables block, the third grade Farming (and foraging) block, and the fourth grade Man & Animal Block. They can be used as read-aloud treat in the afternoons, evenings before bed, or weekends. They can also be used for “quiet time” when a fourth grade student wants or needs to read alone.
Reset in large, easy-to-read type, this book is filled with gentle humor and important lessons about nature and wildlife, and is further enhanced by four original Harrison Cady illustrations. Blacky the Crow is sure to captivate youngsters discovering the joy of reading and the pleasures of storytelling at its finest.
