Where to buy it


Crayfish can be found in rivers and streams across North America, yet relatively little has been written about them. The Life Cycle of a Crayfish provides children with a wealth of information about this interesting animal, such as where it lives and how it reproduces. Other topics include • the different species of crayfish • the different stages of a crayfish’s life • how a mother crayfish cares for her eggs • how crayfish find food and defend themselves
