Wildlife Ranger Action Guide [pb]
Track, Spot & Provide Healthy Habitat for Creatures Close to Home
By Mary Kay Carson [Ohio]
As concern for the welfare of species like honey bees and monarch butterflies grows alongside awareness of the impact of climate change, inspiring the next generation of citizen scientists is more important than ever. With Wildlife Ranger Action Guide, kids can make the world better for the animals and insects they love, starting right in their own backyards.
Dozens of hands-on activities and habitat creation projects, such as making a frog pond from a kiddie pool, planting a pollinator garden for bees, painting a bat house, and building a lodge for lizards, encourage children to learn about and take an active role in protecting local wildlife. Lively photographic field guides covering 78 North American wildlife species (birds, bugs and insects, reptiles, amphibians, mammals) teach kids about the habits and habitats of each and include tips for providing the plants and food needed for their survival. 176 pages
"This action guide encourages children to set up their own wildlife preserve in their backyard... VERDICT: A book full of fun, educational activities." -School Library Journal (Grades 3-6)
