Animals in My World: An Animal Community - H - RR:14
Crabtree Publishing Company
Using prairie dogs as an example, this entertaining book shows children that some animals live in communities, just as humans do. An illustrated cross section of a prairie dog town uses simple labels to show tunnels and rooms used by the animals for different purposes. Adorable photographs feature prairie-dog cooperation in digging tunnels, sharing food, raising pups, and staying safe. A special section teaches children about the rodent family and how prairie dogs communicate with one another.
