Children's Animal Nonfiction

There are many books available for children that deal with animal nonfiction topics. Some of the best books for children are illustrated by famous illustrator Steve Jenkins, whose signature cut paper collage style has graced a number of picture books about animals. This artist challenges kids to look at animals in a new way. In addition to his illustrations, he has written several books about animals. Here are some of his favorites:

The text also includes scientific information about lemmings and their migration habits. Lemmings don't actually commit suicide, but instead migrate when they are forced to migrate due to overpopulation. Munro's illustrations are detailed and clever. Each lemming illustration communicates the rodent's physical characteristics, as well as giving a clue as to how it behaves. The back matter contains the scientific names of each animal, as well as their average sizes.

This children's book aims to teach young readers about the differences between mammals. It contains ink and watercolour illustrations and descriptive text about each animal's characteristics. In this way, young readers can begin to identify the different species of animals by their tails. It's a great way to get children interested in animals without overwhelming them with information.

Beauty and the Beak: How Science and Technology Rescued a Bald Eagle

In the documentary BEAUTY AND THE BEAK, raptor biologist Jane Veltkamp tells the story of how a woman who had become a wildlife rehabber rescued an injured bald eagle named Beauty. Beauty was shot in the beak and had no way to hunt or fly. After she was rescued by Veltkamp, she sought help for the bird and was soon successful. Today, Beauty is a living symbol of our country's compassion for wildlife.

Deborah Lee Rose, renowned children's science author, collaborated with raptor biologist Jane Veltkamp to write the award-winning book about the eagle, who was illegally shot and left without a beak. This book follows the story of Beauty's journey from egg to adulthood, through months of engineering and surgery to make a prosthetic beak, which was successfully implanted in the bald eagle.

A bald eagle named Beauty was shot by a poacher in Alaska and lost most of her upper beak. Without it, the eagle was unable to eat, drink, or preen herself. After the poacher left her eagle in the care of biologists and veterinarians in Idaho, Veltkamp and her team teamed up with a team of experts to build a prosthetic beak for Beauty. The beak is now attached to the bald eagle, and she can now eat, drink, and preen herself.

How To Survive Like Firefly by Kristen Foote

How To Survive Like Firefly is a unique story about insect science. It features fun facts tucked throughout the story and provides opportunities for further learning. Other features of the book include a glossary of terms and photos of real fireflies. The book has been widely acclaimed and is the perfect choice for children who love animals and insects. It is a fun read for younger children and provides a great introduction to science.

How To Survive Like Firefly takes an unexpected route: the story is told from the larval stage. In the first part of the book, an epauletted "general" teaches a group of larvae how to feed on food and bioluminescence. The book then focuses on how the larvae are able to find a mate.
