    One thought on “Apex Predators: The World's Deadliest Hunters, Past and Present”

    1. With large pictures and short descriptions, Steve Jenkins teaches about the Apex Predators those predators so powerful and ferocious that no one hunts them Both extinct and modern, we learn about tigers and sharks and the Komodo dragon, the apex predator dinosaurs like the giant Tylosaurus, and the Utahraptor, extinct mammals like the giant short faced bear and the marsupial saber tooth, and even extinct predatory birds like the giant Teratorn or the flightless terror bird Each illustration incl [...]

    2. Summary I LOVED Apex Predators I am not usually a fan of nonfiction books, however this book was so much fun to read It compares predators today to predators of the past When reading this book, students can learn about new animals as well as fun facts about animals that they are already familiar with Evaluation I think that this book is really great for young readers First, it has a very engaging cover with a T Rex on it Most students love dinosaurs, so I think that this would immediately catch [...]

    3. Sitting here, reading new books from school, when I saw this on my stack and sighed as I thought Steve Jenkins has made a million of these things Know why Because they re awesome Sometimes I have to read a few pages to remember that Who doesn t want to know about the giant short faced bear who was 12 feet tall Along with the illustrations of each animal is another smaller one in silhouette next to an adult human man so you can gauge the size This helped me greatly Or that current day African wil [...]

    4. Overall I really liked it, I m a sucker for the art and I like how the animals were shown as animals and didn t make them terrifying just because Also always love the silhouettes to give a good size visual.Not big on the entry on sharks and listing us a prey They don t generally intend to eat us, and we really need to understand them rather than scaremonger, given people kill sharks than sharks kill people We also kill tigers than any other species I think it s interesting he didn t shy from h [...]

    5. I was surprised to see how many other books have the same title but different topics.Good introduction to the word apex and good size comparison charts No table of contents or index, so this book is mostly good for browsing and getting the wow factor No apparent organization, but does include Modern Day Predators and a Face Off for a pair of water animals and land animals.Could also serve as a pattern for youngsters to compare two

    6. Steve Jenkins never disappoints with his amazing illustrations and interesting information This book includes those deadliest hunters from long ago, of course including T Rex of millions of years ago and the Siberian Tiger of today How they compare if against each other and how they compare to a human size is shown on each double page spread It s a book that will fascinate readers, children to adults.

    7. I think anything Steve Jenkins does is superb Love the collage work, the silhouettes add that needed information graphically instead of just saying how large or small an animal is, he gave the best possible solution The faceoff is great as well as the information everyone must read about the deadliest predator of them all.

    8. Apex predators creatures too tough, too big, or too well armed to be hunted by other animals.Fascinating comparisons between modern day and extinct top predators The diagrams at the bottom showing the animals sizes in comparison to humans really put the prehistoric animals in perspective Students who like nonfiction will really love this one.

    9. Let s put it this way my 5 year old asked to get his notebook in the midst of bedtime read aloud to write to Steve Jenkins He said, This book is so awesome He especially loved the end when they imagine today s apex predators up against extinct apex predators I can see this being a real hit with our readers.

    10. The thing I loved the most were the illustrations that showed the scale of each animal compared to a human So many times, that was the part that gave me the most wow the bird with a 27 foot wingspan, a modern day freshwater ray that is 8 feet across, and a one inch early spider like animal There are modern predators, extinct predators, and kids love these a few apex predator face offs.

    11. Really fascinating Steve Jenkins is incredible, I always love his illustrations and his way of writing nonfiction too I for some reason am most disturbed by the concept of terror birds The idea of a 10 foot bird that may have weighed as much as a present day lion or tiger freaks me out.

    12. One nit pick is how it lists humans as prey, which is a bit misleading since humans appear to mainly be attacked by sharks mistaking them for other, preferred prey, which contributes to misunderstandings about how many people are attacked and or killed by sharks each year.

    13. Jenkins returns with another beautifully illustrated book This time, his intent is clearly to scare the bejeezus out of his readers.Well done, Jenkins Well done

    14. Another fantastic book by Steve Jenkins Do not miss the comparison illustration on each page, comparing the predator to a human male.

    15. Fantastic Steve Jenkins helps to introduce people to new things with beautiful illustrations and interesting facts.

    16. Loved the size comparisons between a human and the predators portrayed in the book So glad that the giant short faced bear is extinct I m also never going in the rivers in Southeast Asia.

    17. Another great nonfiction book from Steve Jenkins Lots of facts about predators, both past and present Liked the layout of information about the animal, additional facts, an illustration of the animal, and an illustration to show the size of the animal.
