As a school project, Alexa raises 
an American Crocodile named 
Jefe. Alexa brings him chicken 
and frogs to eat, and measures 
his growth. Soon he will be big 
enough to return to the wild. Animal ears come in a wide variety 
of shapes, size, and uses—a perfect 
match for each animal’s needs. This 
is the latest in Holland’s Animal 
Anatomy and Adaptation series. Even powerful birds of prey 
can get sick or hurt. When that 
happens, animal helpers at 
raptor centers come to the rescue! This photographic journal takes 
readers behind the scenes at 
five nonprofit sanctuaries and 
rescue zoos, and one care farm, 
that have opened their doors and 
their hearts to desperate animals 
in need.
Can you smell with your feet? 
Do you dig your claws into a 
river’s muddy bank to climb up 
and bask in the sun? Animals’ 
legs are different from humans’ 
in so many ways! From the crocodile’s dentist, 
to the mongoose spa, some 
animals need a little help from 
their friends! Animal Partners 
takes a whimsical look at the 
symbiotic relationships of animals.  Learn about ways animals use 
their tails: to move on land, swim, 
warn others, steer, hold on to things, 
keep warm, balance, fly, attract a 
mate, and defend themselves!
Join Braden, Finley and wildlife biologists 
tracking and tagging mamma bears during 
the winter. Come summer, can they get 
the momas to adopt orphaned cubs? Do busy beavers ever take a 
break? This photographic journal 
documents a year as the beavers 
build their dam, raise their young 
and gather food before the winter 
months come again. A fun-filled Southwestern spin 
on a famous fable flavored with 
repetition for preschoolers and 
puns for older children, this book 
is tasty reading for all! Daisylocks needs the right habitat 
to grow. The beach is too soft, the 
rainforest too wet, and the desert 
too dry. Will she find the place that 
is just right? Catchy twists on traditional songs 
have children chiming in about 
cactuses, camels, and more as they 
learn about the world’s desert habitat, 
flora, and fauna. All animals take baths to keep 
their bodies clean and healthy. 
Humans might use soap and 
water but some animals use 
their tongues, dust, or even let 
other animals clean them off. A child decides to build a fort and 
Grandpa helps. Follow the 
completion of the fort using six 
simple machines: lever, pulley, 
inclined plane, wheel and axle, 
screw, and wedge.
Baby Bat and Pluribus Packrat 
explore their cave and meet 
animals without eyes or colors. 
Baby Bat learns how important 
bats are to the cave habitat. A curious child, a shiny quartz 
crystal, and clever wordplay 
introduce young readers to the 
fascinating world of minerals. A day in the life of a scientist is 
anything but boring! Co-author 
Nicole. F. Angeli, aka the Lizard 
Lady, saves critically endangered 
St. Croix ground lizards. Based on real events, this is a 
heartwarming story of how zoos 
ensure the best for the animals 
in their care, even if the best is 
not at their zoo. Soar into the Solar System to witness the first 
Favorite Planet Competition, emceed by none 
other than the former-ninth planet, now known 
as dwarf planet Pluto. The readers become the 
judges after the sun can’t pick a favorite and the 
meteors leave for a shower. Dangerous animals from all over the 
world gather to compete for The Most 
Dangerous of All trophy. With 
contestants ranging from great white 
sharks to cape buffaloes, you will never 
guess who wins. Huge eyes and fluffly feathers will 
steal the hearts of readers as they 
learn how Otis the barred owl 
prepares for the big world outside 
the nest.
Cozy up for a rainy day read and explore 
the prairie ecosystem through its ever-
changing weather. Each month features 
a storm typical of that season and a 
prairie animal who must shelter, hide, 
escape, or endure those storms. Gorillas using iPads, lemurs finger 
painting, squirrel monkeys blowing 
bubbles...these primates are pretty 
smart! Could you make the grade 
in Primate School? This sequel to the award-winning 
Water Beds takes readers on an 
around-the-world boat ride to learn 
how mammals sleep in or around 
nine major rivers of the world on 
all continents except Antarctica. A young girl’s illustrated, photographic 
journal follows salamanders through 
complete metamorphosis from the cold, 
rainy spring Salamander Night egg 
laying to adult stage in late summer. Marine scientist Ellen Prager 
introduces us to fascinating 
and bizarre animals that use 
slime to survive in the ocean. Sometimes young animals 
learn things from their 
parents, but other times… 
they just know! A companion book to Mary Alice 
Monroe’s <em>Swimming Lessons</em>, 
this photo journal explains the nesting 
cycle of sea turtles and natural life 
along the southeastern coast.
