In an effort to increase respect for certain creatures, this book profiles animals with reputations out of proportion to the actual potential harm they do. An introduction reviews the results of a survey conducted to determine which animals people generally favor or disfavor and the common beliefs held towards animals. The remainder of the book is organized into three parts that group animals according to their habitat of either air, water, or land. Animals or groups of animals profiled include bats, buzzards, moths, leeches, clams, razorback suckers, jellyfish, snakes, slugs, tarantulas, coyotes, ants, packrats, skunks, and toads. Each profile contains the following parts: (1) a story and some of the folklore associated with the animal; (2) a summary of the natural history of the animal, including a description of the animal and its life cycle, the range occupied by the animal, and interactions of the animal with other organisms; (3) a variety of interdisciplinary activities related to the animal; and (4) an annotated resource list. Appendices provide information on edible animals, animal classification, the animal preference survey results, and solutions to puzzles. A glossary and index are included. (Lz)

Reading readiness : research in review by Norma J Livo( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper reviews the studies involving the more commonly measured reading readiness factors, discusses some unique studies, and projects what some needs of future research should be. The research areas discussed include reading readiness tests as predictors of success in beginning reading, auditory discrimination factors and their relation to beginning reading, visual discrimination factors and their relation to beginning reading, oral language development before beginning reading, intelligence factors and their relation to beginning reading, and studies of a more diverse nature. Some generalizations are offered as a result of the conclusions of research in all areas of reading readiness. The author recommends, in particular, that future research should examine specifically the effects of many of the unmeasured factors and create and refine procedures to analyze and measure them. A 122-item bibliography is included. (Author/AW)
