    1. Okay, I realize this book was published in 1991, but I have to point out a HUGE mistake The bats drawn supposedly coming for the nectar of the saguaro flowers are free tailed bats, which are insectivorous Nectar eating bats have a quite different appearance Seems like it would have been pretty easy to find out.

Brenda Z Guiberson s The Cactus Hotel explores the life of a saguaro cactus in the Sonoran Desert Megan Lloyd s illustrations show the various types of animals that create the multiple ecosystems surrounding a saguaro throughout its lifetime The realistic fiction picture book begins with a saguaro fruit dropping to the ground, releasing thousands of seeds Then, a pack rat carries a seed on its whisker where it falls under a paloverde tree As the tree provides shade, the cactus sprouts after a mo [...]


    6.

    12. Being new to the State of Arizona, this book taught me much about the saguaro cactus and desert life in general The desert natural world is MUCH different from the east coast natural world I was raised in This story is as much for adults as it is for younger readers This non fiction, educational book would be great to read to students during their science classes The illustrations were very colorful in describing the authors real world story I thought the author did a great job describing the li [...]

    14. Seeing the original publication date of 1991 I was in first grade , I m surprised I didn t experience this in my elementary school years Quite honestly this is a great factual book on the desert habitat or specifically the Saguaro Cactus life cycle This is another excellent choice on the Memoria Press Kindergarten reading list for literature, paired with Deserts by Gail Gibbons We of course also paired it with the Magic School Bus episode on the desert habitat which expanded our conversation in [...]


    15. I find it so interesting that this informational text is written in a fiction format The author describes the life of a saguaro cactus, taking us from the drop of a seedling onto the desert floor, all the way through to the wooden ribs that remain after the cactus has died and fallen to the ground, but she writes it like a story with the saguaro as the main character Again, this book focuses on one big idea about the saguaro it s ability to provide a home for many different desert animals The te [...]


    16. Personal Reaction This book was full of information Loved it.Purpose Read aloud for 2 5th grade students This book is a book that starts out describing the life of a cactus from first being grown to when it dies Not only is this a book for a plant lesson but the book also introduces the audience to different animals and insects that live in the dessert This would be a good book for a dessert lesson, plant lesson, or animal lessons I would most likely use this on a dessert lesson when talking abo [...]

    18. This is an older publish date but a good supplementary book for study of deserts, cactus, and other animals in the desert habitat It tells the story of the saguaro cactus and how long it takes to grow and add arms and how it becomes a home to other animals alive and when it dies Not non fiction but written at a fourth grade level I would recommend to elementary teachers of science and others.


    19.

    21. This book caught my kids attention better than any other book about deserts, out of the half dozen that we read during that unit They still refer to it I can t think of any better recommendation than that.


    22. This is a wonderful informational book about saguaro cactus life cycles It is well written and well illustrated In addition o information about the cactus, the mention of the many species that make their home in the cactus are equally informative.




    23. Will be great for my 4th grade science unit on organisms and their environment Had some fun wow factors.
