Book Review/Giveaway: Deep In The Desert. Ends March 10th
Deep In The Desert by Rhonda Lucas Donald and illustrated by Sherry Neidigh
About the Book: Catchy desert twists on traditional children’s songs and poems will have children chiming in about cactuses, camels, and more as they learn about the desert habitat and its flora and fauna. Tarkawara hops on the desert sand instead of a kookaburra sitting in an old gum tree. And teapots aren’t the only things that are short and stout—just look at the javelina’s hooves and snout. Travel the world’s deserts to dig with meerkats, fly with bats, and hiss with Gila monsters! Whether sung or read aloud, Deep in the Desert makes learning about deserts anything but dry.
My Review: This is a story about animals in the desert where the author used nursery rhyme songs to tell about the desert habitat and its flora and fauna. For example, Deep in the Desert may be sung to “Down in the Valley” or The Camel with Two Humps may be sung to “The Itsy, Bitsy Spider”. Travel the desert and learn about nose bats, desert tortoise, fennec fox, meerkat, thorny devil and many more.
Deep in the Desert includes six pages of learning activities about For Creative Minds (go to www.sylvandellpublishing.com), The Desert Habitat, Desert Fun Facts, Deserts of the World i.e. a map location of the deserts and Match the plant or animal Adaptations with questions and answers. The illustrations are colorful and show each desert animal in its habitat. Great for classroom teaching.
