PERFECT STEM TITLE FOR CLASSROOMS: Here is a great choice for science units on animals, animal behavior, and conservation.
AN EVERYDAY ANIMAL, UNCOVERED: Many kids see skunks often, but probably don’t know anything about how they really live.
UNIQUE APPROACH TO SCIENCE: This nonfiction book offers beautiful illustrations in place of photographs and a captivating narrative rather than lists of facts, a markedly different approach from most nonfiction animal books for children.
ACCLAIMED AUTHOR: Laurence Pringle’s books have strong sales records and receive excellent reviews.
ROBUST BACK MATTER: Includes “More About Skunks,” a glossary, and further resources.
“Maligned and malodorous…but oh, so interesting. Skunks may not be everyone’s favorites, but they are fascinating. The smoothly written, gentle narrative explores the life of a family from birth in early spring to the kits’ independence in late fall. Sweet—really: Animal lovers will find much to appreciate here, and report writers are well served.” – Kirkus Reviews
“Packed with interesting facts and beautiful digital illustrations, this nonfiction book will entice early readers and student researchers alike. Back matter includes more information about skunks as well as a glossary and a list of additional resources. Young readers will enjoy the lyrical text and warm illustrations…”—School Library Journal
