“A children's story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children's story in the slightest.” ~C.S. Lewis
Dangerous Animals by: Melvin and Gilda Berger, Scholastic Inc., 2009, 46pp
Reading Level: 4.2
Synopsis: Dangerous Animals is a true false book about animals that are dangerous. For every animal presented there is a true or false question for the reader to answer. After each question the answer is provided with facts about the animal.
Rationale for Using: I think children are interested in animals and this presents questions children would likely ask with the answers presented in a easy format. I think it also is an easy read for children and provides interesting facts about the animals.
Common Core Connection: I think this book could be used to help children learn to write about factual things in a different format. It could also be used as part of the science curriculum when discussing animals.
