Two Bobbies
Two Bobbies: A True Story of Hurricane Katrina, Friendship, and Survival - Kirby Larson,Jean Cassels,Mary Nethery

Audience: Grades 4-8

Format: Kindle/Owned

 

 

A heartbreaking and yet hopeful book. It's hard to imagine being forced to leave your pets behind in a disaster or having to choose between saving your furry family and saving yourself. Hurricane Katrina was a disaster on so many levels. At least these two had each other.

What makes a mammal a mammal?
What Makes a Mammal a Mammal? (Animal Classes #3) - Andi Cann

 

This is a cute read-aloud (or independent read) for elementary students to help them understand the characteristics of mammals and the different kinds of animals that fit into that category. It explains that mammals have hair, drink milk as babies, breathe air, are born alive, have big brains, are warm-blooded, and have middle ear bones & backbones. It explains it all in easy to understand language that would fit right into a third-grade curriculum. It then asks students whether a specific animal is a mammal and explains why or why not.

 

It is part of a series, including: What makes a bird a bird? and What makes a bug a bug?

 

This book can also be used with older students who need scaffolding, are struggling readers, or are English Language Learners.
