My five-year old grandson, who is obsessed with the Wild Kratts, really likes Martin and Chris Kratt’s “Wild Kratts: Wild Predators”. This book does accomplish an important goal – encouraging my grandson to read. If you also have a child or grandchild who has resolved not to read aloud, it does merit your consideration.
The text of this book is interesting and informative. Following the introductory pages, each different predator is discussed on two facing pages. Since predators are found in all animal classifications, I liked that those discussed in “Wild Kratts: Wild Predators” included mammals, birds, reptiles, and insects. Only predators in the fish family were omitted. The print is large and easy to see; there is not so much text that it overwhelms a child reading the book. The illustrations look much like the animation from the “Wild Kratts” television show.
I am not as impressed by their latest offering as I was with former Wild Kratts books. I felt some of the discussions were ambiguous in their references or led the reader to misinterpret the discussion. For example, the chapter about jaguars stated they caught caimans; the next sentence stated “…they can be black or spotted…” Was “they referring to the jaguar or the caiman? This may be a picky point, but one that in the context of a child’s learning to read and to interpret what they read, I believe is relevant.
“Wild Kratts: Wild Predators” is a very good book with which to encourage young readers. My grandson has been willing to try reading this book aloud. It features some of his favorite PBS characters; it is short, but not too short, and Martin and Chris Kratt “Activate Predator Power”!

My 6 year-old son isn't crazy about sitting down to read, but he loves Wild Crats, and he loves these books! Even my 2 younger daughters come to listen when he reads these. They are full of good factual information and are entertaining as well. I hope they make more!

My daughter loves Wild Kratts and loves reading these books. They are educational and an easy read. They aren’t put together very well as the seam does begin to separate rather quickly. But it’s an inexpensive book and I’m sure I can fix it with glue.
We love the Step Into Reading Series.2019年1月21日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
We love the Step Into Reading Series. We love the Wild Kratts so naturally we love this book! It is just an addition to the show, and lets you learn more about the animals they teach about in the show. It is a 2.5 on the AR book Point Scale.
Book came damaged and loose pages2018年10月22日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
My son loves the wild kratts so I got this book for him. When it arrived I didn’t pay any attention to the book itself and we went to read it and the book covers were all scratched up and the pages inside were falling out. I ended up keeping the book and just supergluing the pages back in the book. If he didn’t open it already for his birthday before I noticed it I would of returned it. Gave it 2 Stars because my son likes the book and enjoys it.
