Munch, crunch: look who’s coming to bite this book! Created with the American Museum of Natural History, 1-2-3 Predators Bite! invites kids to count along as a rattlesnake takes ONE die-cut bite; a toothy tiger takes TWO, and an eagle swoops down for THREE. Simple facts about each predator appear in the back matter, and a final spread reinforces counting skills with a 1-10 list.
Incredibly informative and reads very much like a book published by a museum… which of course it is. Unfortunately, it’s just not that great and felt like it was jumping all over the place.
The American Museum of Natural History in New York City is one of the world’s largest and most respected museums, with an annual attendance of five million. Since the Museum was founded in 1869, its collections have grown to include more than 33 million specimens and artifacts relating to the natural world and human cultures. The Museum showcases its collections in the exhibit halls and, behind the scenes, more than 200 scientists carry out cutting-edge research.
