    — Inside Coyotes

    At first glance, scavengers seem disgusting. When you get right down to it, though, these animals and their gross eating habits are helping our planet. Scavengers that eat other animals' leftovers, dead animals, and human garbage are nature's own "green team," recycling and removing waste that would otherwise pile up and cause illness in people and animals. That is not to say that these animals, and their food choices, are not nauseating. But that is exactly why young people will be drawn to each fascinating, stomach-turning title. Each volume features sidebars to highlight interesting facts. This set features:

    •Sidebars with added-value facts about each animal
    •Set can be used to meet Common Core ELA Power Standards in reading and writing

    Each book includes:

    • Full-color Photographs
    • Pronunciation Guide
    • Web Sites
    • Glossary
    • Index

    Titles include:

    Coyotes - Coyotes are one of the most successful animals in North America. They can live almost anywhere and eat almost anything. This adaptability allows them to survive, despite encroaching human development or environmental and climatic changes. Opportunistic and omnivorous, coyotes will eat berries, bugs, snails, small mammals, and are more than happy to dig into another animal's rotting remains. Readers will learn about the many ways coyotes hunt as well as the ways they communicate. Coyotes are not only a vital part of their ecosystem, but they are fascinating members of the scavenger family.

    Raccoons - Famed for their masked faces and intelligence, raccoons are omnivores and happily scavenge rotting meats, fruits, or vegetables. They will steal pet food and break into garbage cans, too. They have many disgusting food habits, and yet these animals are well known for washing their dinners. This edition features intriguing sidebars and loads of life science data for young zoologists to explore, all while learning about one of nature's most successful scavengers.
