Book Review - Scholastic Reader Level 2: Hibernation

About the Book
Learn all about these animals and where they go during winter!

During the cold winter months, some animals go into a deep sleep called hibernation. You'd be surprised to learn about all of the other animals that hibernate besides bears, like squirrels, skunks, chipmunks and bats. Children will learn how an animal prepares for hibernation by stuffing itself with food so that it can survive in its dormant months and how animals prepare "safe spots," like dens and burrows, so that they will be protected from predators as they sleep.

My Take on the Book
Scholastic books has published another excellent nonfiction book for young readers. All children love animals and are curious about them. This specific book about animal hibernation will fascinate you and your child.

Each set of pages includes a beautiful photograph of the warm or cold blooded animal that hibernates. The text explains what kind of hibernation the animal prepares for and how it prepares. I found this especially interesting as I did not know there were so many different forms of hibernation.

I see this book as a resource for a classroom and family library. I know you will enjoy this book along with your child. It may be a good springboard to locating other animals besides the ones in the book that hibernate.
