Teaching Idea I would use this book in a research lesson. I would model what it looks like to read an informational book and take notes on it to then write an essay on. I would have them choose an animal to do research on and then write about it in their science journals.

    Summary: This book is a chapter book that teaches you all about koalas; where they live, what they eat, how they function, what they do. Review: This book is a nonfiction informational text that guides students on teaching them about a specific topic. This is a great mentor text for read or writing for students to copy the author and write their own informational book.

    My son (7) and I (Mom) reviewed this book for Mother Daughter Book Reviews. We both gave it 5 stars. Here are our thoughts: SON SAYS: This book is all about koalas. It has lots of pictures and you learn lots of things about koalas like they carry their babies in a pouch, they have two thumbs, and lots more. The pictures of the koalas were adorable and I loved them alot. The pictures were great and there were some things in the book I already knew about because we went to Australia last year. I lik My son (7) and I (Mom) reviewed this book for Mother Daughter Book Reviews. We both gave it 5 stars. Here are our thoughts: SON SAYS: This book is all about koalas. It has lots of pictures and you learn lots of things about koalas like they carry their babies in a pouch, they have two thumbs, and lots more. The pictures of the koalas were adorable and I loved them alot. The pictures were great and there were some things in the book I already knew about because we went to Australia last year. I liked how they showed how words are pronounced like “aw-STRALE-YUH”. I already knew a lot about koalas but I did learn about the scent patch that only a male koala has. They use it to rub it on trees to tell other animals that it’s their territory. I also learned that koalas sleep 18 hours a day and eat 5 hours a day and only have 1 hour left in the day. What do they do with that hour? I loved it and it was the best book ever. When I was looking at the National Geographic catalogue, the first book I wanted was Koalas. Everybody would like this book especially kids who like fuzzy, cuddly animals. MOM SAYS: I knew that when my son saw Koalas in the National Geographic Spring Catalogue that he would be all over the book. Even though the book is a Level 1 National Geographic Reader, I knew this was the book for him. Koalas is all about … you guessed it … KOALAS! As with most National Geographic publications, Koalas features absolutely stunning photography of all kinds of koalas in all kinds of poses. Every time we flipped the page, both my son and I went “awww….” Koalas are, hands down, the cutest animals ever (except when they are new born joeys and are hairless and look like tiny little aliens). Aside from the beautiful photos, this little 32 page book is filled with facts about koalas from what they look like, parts of their bodies and their function, where they live, what they eat, how they care for their babies, and what they do all day (i.e., basically sleep and eat). The book includes pronounciation guides for some of the trickier words like eucalyptus and Australia and introduces words relevant to koalas like marsupial, habitat, and mammal providing definitions at the end of the book. Finally, the National Geographic Society is dedicated to the conservation of the planet including all the living creatures it sustains; therefore, there is a little section about the dangers koalas face including the encroachment by humans into their natural habitat leading to injuries and deaths. There is a little write-up about the Koala Hospital in Port Macquarie in New South Wales which is dedicated to helping injured and sick koalas. Needless to say, my son has a clear vision of what he wants to be when he grows up (apparently I can live in an apartment beside him in Australia where he will be working as a koala rescuer). My Bottom Line: Koala features stunning photograph, interesting facts about koalas, fun little jokes and activities, and the introduction of new concepts such as marsupial, mammals, and habitat. I highly recommend this fantastic book to children who love furry and adorable animals ages 4 years and older. * This book was provided to me by the publisher free-of-charge in exchange for our honest reviews.

    National Geographic Kids Readers: Koalas by Laura F. Marsh Informational Published in 2014 This was a cute and fluffy expo on Koalas that is full of colorful up close photos that children will love. It has good chunking and corny jokes to help children to enjoy a passive tour of the outback. It has basic information like Koalas live in Australia and eat eucalyptus leaves that also give them a faint aroma. One fact that surprised me was that they actually have a hospital for koalas the same way we ha National Geographic Kids Readers: Koalas by Laura F. Marsh Informational Published in 2014 This was a cute and fluffy expo on Koalas that is full of colorful up close photos that children will love. It has good chunking and corny jokes to help children to enjoy a passive tour of the outback. It has basic information like Koalas live in Australia and eat eucalyptus leaves that also give them a faint aroma. One fact that surprised me was that they actually have a hospital for koalas the same way we have a hospital for cats and dogs here. Koalas are marsupials which means that their young are born in a pre-mature way and are carried in a pouch on mom's stomach for a while after birth. It does cover the unfortunate fact that the koalas are verging on being endangered. The latest statistics claim that there are under 100,000 in the wild and most of the damage is done by human deforestation and traffic accidents. I would use this book to showcase various life science lessons. This is a great way to get students interested in conservation and ecology. Because it is a beginning reader book it is designed for children in lower grade levels and struggling readers. It employs many strategies that would be helpful for EL students at beginning to intermediate level proficiency. At the very least I would showcase this book to students as a teacher pick. I would try to boost the appeal and get it in the hands of someone who stays on the surface level of books and doesn't care to invest in a story. If they like one book from the series they would certainly like others because the format is similar. For ESOL strategies I would love to pair this book with a short video clip of Koalas in the wild that matches up with the same information presented in the book (B11). The basic format of the National Geographic Kids series falls under sheltered instruction (A8). This could be a good book to make a KWL chart with (D1). There are many possibilities for this book. I would recommend this book to a teacher who has a focus on developing an appreciation of nature in his or her students. Many conversations can branch from reading this one book. When examined as one book in a series, a holistic view of whole ecosystems can be obtained. Geography and mathematics can be incorporated to present a multi-faceted view of the issue of Koala endangerment.

    My youngest son loves books about animals, and this one is no exception. The photographs are bright and professional. The information provided is great for younger readers or about first level readers. He feels the book has just the right amount of facts for early readers. I like the layout and colorful pages. We both agree older readers might still like to look through the book but they would need a more thorough book to learn more. We received this book through a giveaway.

    An easy-to-read introduction to koalas. Readers are introduced to physical attributes of koalas, their habitat and eating habits, and lots of photographs of them. A superb nonfiction for beginning readers. The photographs are probably what will draw readers in the most, but the information is solid and conveyed in a readable way. Kids will likely enjoy the little jokes every once in a while too.

    This book talked all about koalas. It talked about what they ate, where they lived, that they are pouch animals, and about there babies. At the end it has a matching game to see what you learned. This book was good. I liked all the facts it gave you. It also showed pictures of koalas in real life. It would be good to use when talking about koalas. Also kids that really love animals may really enjoy this.

    My kids and I enjoyed this book. The pictures are fabulous, there is lots of great information about koalas, and we learned a lot. My girls were especially excited and tickled by the koala hospitals and ambulances and how people help koalas.
