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.
One of the most prolific and best-loved writers of children’s books, Thornton W. Burgess (1874–1965) created heartwarming tales of animals and their natural habitats. His stories, bestsellers year after year, have thrilled generations of youngsters.
