“Developed by literacy experts for students in kindergarten through grade three, this book introduces capybaras to young readers through leveled text and related photos”–

In Capybara: The World’s Largest Rodent, large color photos and grade-appropriate text will engage young readers as they learn about the natural habitat, physical characteristics, diet, life cycle, and behavior of this huge rodent. A comparison diagram is also included to show readers the animal in relation to a familiar object.

Olive and her best friend, Reynaldo, hatch a plan to kidnap the school’s capybara mascot, planning to return it, heroically, just in time for the school’s pep rally and claim a reward: permission for their drama club to practice in the auditorium. And, hopefully, some overdue respect for the school’s non-athletes. But when an animal-rights student activist and an undercover athlete with murky motivations join in the conspiracy, their plans—along with Cappy the capybara—veer wildly out of Olive’s control.

The true story and adventures of Capyboppy, the Peet family’s pet capybara.

Offering fascinating insight into life in the rain forest, this book follows a capybara through its day as it sleeps, eats, and moves.

Is there anything better than outsmarting your enemies? The Capybara, by using his smarts, finds a way to escape his foes by appealing to their stomachs. He also shows that by helping others, even those who want to eat him, you can be rewarded. From my experience kids love animals and are fascinated by them.

Our local zoo has capybaras and we love listening to their little sounds. I had no idea there were so many books about them though! Pinned.
