From the Series Common Core K-2 Starter Set

A tiny cricket bounces across the scorching desert sand, making leap after leap. Hot on its trail is a bird--not flying but running. It is a roadrunner. The small bird is quick and soon gobbles up the insect. Then it zooms off again, hunting for more prey. Welcome to life in the desert! Young readers will learn all about the desert environment where the roadrunner lives, as well as its physical characteristics, what it eats, and how it survives in its hot, dry home. Colorful photos and diagrams, clear text, age-appropriate activities, and critical-thinking questions will keep young readers turning the pages as they take a closer look at this intriguing desert dweller.
