Centipedes and Millipedes. 978-0-778-77396-2.
This non-fiction picture book series, What Lives in the Dirt?, is great for introducing the primary set to what creatures live in the world at their feet. Hannah Tolson’s illustrations are simple enough so that even the youngest of students can clearly see what the information in the text is stating. These books are packed with facts that are right on cue with primary grade vocabulary. Each title contains highlighted words that can be found in the Glossary in the back, an at-home project that includes a material list and step-by-step instructions for students to extend their learning, a “More amazing facts” section, and an index. There is also a QR code on the back to access a Teacher’s Guide. This reviewer read Snails and Ants in the series.
THOUGHTS: A great series addition for elementary libraries for use in classrooms as well as for kids who love to get down and dirty outside.
