A small snake glides sideways across the hot desert sand. As it moves, it makes an S shape with its body. Then the sidewinder snake buries itself under the sand. There, with only its head poking out, it waits for prey. Welcome to life in the desert! Young readers will learn all about the desert environment where the sidewinder lives, as well as its physical characteristics, what it eats, and how it survives in its hot, dry home. Colorful photos and diagrams, clear text, age-appropriate activities, and critical-thinking questions will keep young readers turning the pages as they take a closer look at this intriguing desert dweller.

SLC Review - Desert Animals

The desert is a harsh and unforgiving environment and home to a collection of unique animals with special characteristics which allow them to live and thrive there. The well-written text explores physical characteristics, diet, predators, and the young. Colorful full-page photographs, text bubbles, and diagrams perfectly complement the age-appropriate text. A critical thinking question is included in each spread. Each title includes a Science Lab section which presents students with a challenge based on the text. These would be appropriate for use in a learning center to promote independent learning. Photographs of prey being eaten might disturb some readers, but most students will be captivated by the fascinating animals described in each title.
