Children who love both animals
and a rousing game of I Spy will have fun with this full-colour, illustrated
story book. To give kids practice identifying similarities and differences, the
book starts by pairing easy-to-distinguish animals, such as zebras and horses.
Then it moves on to duos that are more difficult to tell apart, such as turtles
and tortoises and seals and sea lions. Reading Animals Two by Two is like taking a walk through the zoo with an eagle-eyed
friend – one who wants to know if you can spot the differences between a frog
and a toad or a mole and a vole!
Animals Two by Two is part of the I Wonder Why
book series, and written to ignite the curiosity of children in years F–3 while
encouraging them to become avid readers.
I Wonder Why series is a set of science books created specifically for
young learners who are in their first years of school. The content for each
book was chosen to be appropriate for youngsters who are beginning to construct
knowledge of the world around them. These youngsters ask questions. They want
to know about things. They are more curious than they will be when they are a
decade older. Research shows that science is students’ favourite subject when
they enter school for the first time.
These books explore the marvels
of animals, plants and other phenomena related to biology. Included in each
volume is a Parent/Teacher Handbook with coordinating activities. The I Wonder
Why series is written by an award-winning science educator. After
completing a science activity, rereading or referring back to the book and
talking about connections with the activity can be a deepening experience that
stabilises the learning as a long-term memory.
