Jabber Jaws an Alaskan Magpie
Please see our Reading section for leveled reading series such as I Can Read, Step Into Reading, and many more.
What a treat to read true animal stories to learn about animals. The author of these books is a homeschool mom in Alaska, and their family has special permits to care for sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife - these are stories about some of the animals they rescued. Each 32-page book shares a story of how the animal came to them, how they behaved while with the family, the mischief they got into, and their release back into the wild. The back of each book offers general facts about that animal species and some questions for discussion. The books about Mr. Stubbs, Jabber Jaws, and Bunny include photos of the animal in the story. The other two books include colorful illustrations. These are great as read-alouds for younger children and as enhancement for your science curriculum. Get to know some of the animals of Alaska. ~ Donna
