Overview


Learn how aardvarks dig complex underground homes and dive headfirst into mounds of dangerous insects to find food!

Nature's Children series provides young readers (Ages 8-10) with fascinating information about the planet's most incredible wildlife species. Each title offers a complete picture of the animal- from birth to adulthood- and describes its place in our world, including how humans impact it and its environment.

Looking something like a cross between a rabbit, an anteater, and a pig, aardvarks have a unique appearance. Readers will discover how these remarkable animals dig complex underground homes and dive headfirst into mounds of dangerous insects to find food. They will also learn how aardvarks mate and care for young and why they can be a huge benefit to humans.
