    With large pictures and short descriptions, Steve Jenkins teaches about the Apex Predators those predators so powerful and ferocious that no one hunts them Both extinct and modern, we learn about tigers and sharks and the Komodo dragon, the apex predator dinosaurs like the giant Tylosaurus, and the Utahraptor, extinct mammals like the giant short faced bear and the marsupial saber tooth, and even extinct predatory birds like the giant Teratorn or the flightless terror bird Each illustration includes a scale reference with a drawing of an adult human male standing beside the predator, and a little tidbit of further information about each one At the end, there was an apex predator face off both on land and on sea, to see how a modern predator would stand up against an ancient one This would work great in a middle school or elementary classroom as a springboard for further study of a species or as a discussion in a science class about these unique creatures There is a mention at the end that man is the deadliest predator that ever lived Includes a bibliography and websites you can visit for further information.Cross posted to CHECK IT OUT

    Succinct, engaging information about current and extinct apex predators with a visual scale reference to help readers visualize the size of each animal showcased and illustrations by Steve Jenkins make this book an enjoyable, quick read A Who Would Win section at the end will get readers comparing and contrasting predator facts to see if they agree with the book s assessment I really enjoy Jenkin s illustrations, but personally, I always rather read a non fiction picture book on animals that has photographs rather than illustrations.

    Summary I LOVED Apex Predators I am not usually a fan of nonfiction books, however this book was so much fun to read It compares predators today to predators of the past When reading this book, students can learn about new animals as well as fun facts about animals that they are already familiar with Evaluation I think that this book is really great for young readers First, it has a very engaging cover with a T Rex on it Most students love dinosaurs, so I think that this would immediately catch their eyes It also has headings on every page, which makes to book fun to read The adjectives used by the author makes the story an adventure, which students would love I also really liked how the author had a comparison scale that compares the predator s size to the size of an average human I also really like how at the end, the author told readers who would win in a fight, if a modern day predator could fight a prehistoric predator Teaching Point I think I would use this book for a visualizing lesson I would read a page or two each morning, and have the student draw what they think the predator may look like I think that the adjectives used in this book make it perfect to practice visualizing.

    Sitting here, reading new books from school, when I saw this on my stack and sighed as I thought Steve Jenkins has made a million of these things Know why Because they re awesome Sometimes I have to read a few pages to remember that Who doesn t want to know about the giant short faced bear who was 12 feet tall Along with the illustrations of each animal is another smaller one in silhouette next to an adult human man so you can gauge the size This helped me greatly Or that current day African wild dogs are incredible hunters 9 out of 10 hunts end in a kill Or that the water snake Titanoboa was 48 feet long UGH fascinating.Steve Jenkins books make me want to tell everyone facts about animals Kids work this way, too.

    Overall I really liked it, I m a sucker for the art and I like how the animals were shown as animals and didn t make them terrifying just because Also always love the silhouettes to give a good size visual.Not big on the entry on sharks and listing us a prey They don t generally intend to eat us, and we really need to understand them rather than scaremonger, given people kill sharks than sharks kill people We also kill tigers than any other species I think it s interesting he didn t shy from having kids say anomalocaris but used sea scorpion instead of euripterid.

    I was surprised to see how many other books have the same title but different topics.Good introduction to the word apex and good size comparison charts No table of contents or index, so this book is mostly good for browsing and getting the wow factor No apparent organization, but does include Modern Day Predators and a Face Off for a pair of water animals and land animals.Could also serve as a pattern for youngsters to compare two

    Steve Jenkins never disappoints with his amazing illustrations and interesting information This book includes those deadliest hunters from long ago, of course including T Rex of millions of years ago and the Siberian Tiger of today How they compare if against each other and how they compare to a human size is shown on each double page spread It s a book that will fascinate readers, children to adults.

    I think anything Steve Jenkins does is superb Love the collage work, the silhouettes add that needed information graphically instead of just saying how large or small an animal is, he gave the best possible solution The faceoff is great as well as the information everyone must read about the deadliest predator of them all.

    Before reading this book I had never heard the term apex predator It was interesting to learn about apex predators from the past and the present I also liked that it had a section where they theorized what would happen if these past and present predators met each other Lots of great information presented in a kid friendly and appealing manner.
