24 pages | PDF | 1.9 MB
Many people find centipedes creepy because of their many sets of legs, but these little creatures can also inflict some serious pain. Centipedes have poisonous claws that they use to capture prey and fight off enemies. The claws can be quite painful for a human, but rarely deadly. These are just some of the startling facts children will discover as they explore the strange and unusual world of these creepy crawlers.
Vivid, eye-popping photos and clear, grade-appropriate text will engage emergent and early readers as they learn about the natural habitat, physical characteristics, diet, and behavior of this unique invertebrate.
