What Do You Do With a Tail Like This?
Animals use their noses, ears, tails, eyes, mouths and feet in very different ways." It is the reader's job to go through six two-page spreads to identify by eyes, ears, nose, etc., the type of animal shown. Turn the page and each animal is viewed in full, along with information on how those unique sensors are used. The usual suspects are included, including the jackrabbit with the big ears, and the monkey with the long tail, but less common animals such as the blue-footed booby and the archerfish make this book exceptionally informative. The final pages of the book serve as both index and glossary, listing the animals again by their unique sensors and providing even more information about the creatures.
