Pandas by James Maclaine (An Usborne Book)
Pandas are interesting and beautiful animals. Young children will learn a lot of interesting facts about Panda Bears when they read the book Pandas by James Maclaine. As I read it with my preschool children, I was impressed at how well the book kept their attention. It is an easy read with great illustrations. Pandas is illustrated by Jenny Cooper and Richard Watson. The authors of the book consulted with Professor David MacDonald, CBE at the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit, Zoology Department, University of Oxford. The publication date is 2016.
Children learn about natural Panda habitats.
I think this was our favorite part. We leaned about Panda babies. Did you know that Panda babies have almost no fur at all when they are born?
Panda babies are very tiny compared to the Mama Panda.
Look how this mother Panda bear is teaching her baby to climb a tree.
We learned that humans who work with Panda Bears wear Panda suits so that they don’t confuse the bears. This is very important when humans must prepare a Panda to be released into the wild for the first time.
In the back of the book, there is a glossary. Use this to teach new words to your young readers.
Teach children to use an index. If they want to review something they’ve learned such as what Pandas eat, they’ll know what page to find the information.
This little book will be one of our favorites. As of the date of this post, the book is only $4.99 to purchase individually. It is also part of an Usborne Beginner Readers Set, the Beginners Animals Box Set. This set would make a great addition to any classroom, homeschool, or home.
Pandas is also part of the Usborne Beginners Library Collection 1.
