Burgess Animal Book for Children

USD $9.95

When Jenny Wren learns that Peter Rabbit would like to know more about the four-footed friends who share the Green Meadows and Green Forest with him, she encourages him to speak with Old Mother Nature who is only too happy to help. During their “classroom” chats, she not only teaches Peter about Arctic Hare and Antelope Jack but also tells him about such creatures as Flying Squirrel, Mountain Beaver, Pocket Gopher, Grasshopper Mouse, Silvery Bat, Mule Deer, and Grizzly Bear.

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. I always recommend these books as a compliment to the Earthschooling Fourth Grade Curriculum.

Told with all the warmth and whimsy of Burgess’s stories, this engaging book acquaints youngsters with many forms of wildlife and the animals’ relationships with one another. The charming collection of entertaining tales is sure to transport today’s young readers to the same captivating world of nature that delighted generations of children before them.
