This nonfiction book is about wildlife in urban areas. It will inform as well as educate. This book could easily be used for school projects for elementary school students as well as possible high school students.
When we think of wild animals, we don’t immediately associate them with the cities we live in. But a closer look soon reveals that we share our urban creatures.
City Critters examines how and why so many wild animals choose to live in places that, on first glance at least, seem contrary to their needs. How do those raccoons, squirrels, skunks, coyotes, crows, gulls, and geese not to mention the alligators, eagles, sea otters and snakes manage to survive in the big city?
And what are our responsibilities in enduring that these animals can continue to share our city lives?
This is a great book from start to finish. I learned so much reading the book about critters. From now on when I am out after dark, I may look out for these interesting creatures myself.
