African Wild Dogs
With their large, round ears, patchwork coat, and bone-crunching jaws, African wild dogs are some of the most distinctive animals roaming the African plains. And their pups are among the cutest of all canines! African wild dogs live in large packs, led by a male and female. The female gives birth to her pups in an underground den, and she and other members of the pack work together to care for and protect the furry babies until they are big enough to hunt for prey on their own. In this coming-of-age introduction to African wild dogs, readers will see how these pups learn how to hunt and live in a pack. The lively text, colorful pages, and exquisite photos are sure to delight and engage emergent readers.
