From the Series Life Under the Sea
In Crabs, young readers will learn how a crab hunts for food and how it defends itself from predators. Vibrant, full-color photos and carefully leveled text will engage early readers as they discover the underwater world of crabs.
A labeled diagram helps readers identify a crab’s body parts, while a picture glossary reinforces new vocabulary. Children can learn more about crabs online using our safe search engine that provides relevant, age-appropriate websites. Crabs also features reading tips for teachers and parents, a table of contents, and an index.
Crabs is part of Jump!’s Life Under the Sea series.

Each book reviewed contains vivid, color photographs of each title animal, its habitat, and related animals. Every close-up photograph provides great detail, such as the multiple colors that make up a crab’s claws. Topics covered include parts of the body, mating and/or how babies are born, predators, habitat environments, and different species types. Each page or page spread features one new fact, stated in simple, concise sentences. At the end of each book there is a “Learn More” section that includes a website with directions on how to search. This is a nice and safe feature for beginning web explorers. The titles in this series are recommended for collections in need of more primary nonfiction selections. Recommended.
