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.

Quick, Little Monkey!
Written by Sarah L. Thomson & illustrated by Lita Judge
picture book
Recommend Ages: 3-7

When Little Monkey’s curiosity causes her to slip and fall to the dark, shadowy rainforest floor, she must hide—quick!—because an ocelot is looking for lunch. Thanks to Papa, Little Monkey knows just what to do to stay safe. And thanks to her own wit and speed, she escapes. But no sooner is she safe from the ocelot than she finds herself wrapped in the coils of an emerald tree boa. This exciting adventure will enthrall readers as Little Monkey faces one challenge after another and will also teach them about the fascinating lives of pygmy marmoset monkeys, the smallest monkeys in the world.
