Poisonous Animals

Reviewed by:

This is one of 65 books in a non-fiction series from Usborne Books that is geared for the Grade 1-3 audience (Usborne Beginners series). Information is presented in clear, simple sentences using a good-sized font and double-spaced text.  The limited text is arranged in short paragraphs next to drawings or photographs that clarify and extend.  On some pages, there are text boxes that present additional facts.

Information is organized into chapters that are only two pages in length and have a clear, larger font for the chapter headings.  A table of contents and index help young readers focus their search; a picture glossary and websites, monitored and updated by Usborne, will provide further information.

The “Usborne Beginners” series includes books that relate to our Science, Social Studies and Health curricula as well as many books about animals, pirates, medieval castles, and ancient civilizations that will delight beginning readers as well as being appropriate for our English Language Learners and struggling readers in higher grades.  These books come in a small size format (16 x21 cm) with a library binding that will withstand heavy circulation.
