Roly Poly Pangolin

Anna Dewdney

I'm a sucker for books that look really new in a library, and this book by the author of the Llama Llama series looked nice and shiny and just right for the K4 cuties. They ate it up and loved the rhyming and roly-poly, shy pangolin stuff. What I loved about it as a teacher is that there was tons of information about pangolins (all new to me since I had never heard of one before) that was shown only in the illustrations. We could look together to see what they eat (ants) and how they eat (with their tongue).

Always on the lookout for fiction books with nonfiction information tucked in the pages...
