BOOK REPORT edgewood students get defensive

You never know what surprising facts will burst forth from the brains of Fairmont’s bright, curious students.  Hursh is an expert on pangolin lizards, as Edgewood campus second grade teacher Mrs. Kaneski discovered during her reading of What to Do When Something Wants to Eat You.  In this book, author and illustrator Steve Jenkins gets kids engaged in fun discoveries about the animal kingdom, like how puffer fish protect themselves from becoming lunch!  This is an imaginative way to teach children about animal defenses such as mimicry, camouflage and speed.  And the book invites them to consider, “What would you do if something wanted to eat you?”
