These animal adventure 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.
Children will love finding out as Peter Rabbit, Jimmy Skunk, Prickly Porky, Granny Fox, Reddy Fox, and other dwellers in the Green Forest react to a new — and scary — neighbor. All ends happily, of course, in this timeless fable by noted storyteller Thornton W. Burgess.
Reprinted in large, easy-to-read type and enhanced with six new illustrations, based on the Harrison Cady originals, this book combines the fun of a good story with gentle lessons about nature, wildlife, and proper behavior.
