A great classroom or home addition!
This is a great book to use at all ages and a perfect addition to any classroom. It is a guessing book that encourages interaction in the classroom. It can be used to discuss the differences between animals, body parts, or anything to pertain to science. In this book the reader is introduced to different animals and their lifestyles by looking at the different parts of their bodies and how they use them. For example, an elephant uses his nose to give himself a bath, a jackrabbit uses his ears to keep cool, and lizards use their tails to get away. <BR/> <BR/>This book is full of beautiful illustrations and is a great way to get young readers involved in reading. They are able to guess the animals and many extension activities can be done with it, for a kindergarten class this would be way to learn about body parts and the five senses. They can also compare and contrast different types of animals and how they are compared to humans. This could be used with an older class as a type of research project where they get to add animals to the book and add body parts and find animals to fit into the categories. <BR/><BR/>This is a definite addition to both my future classroom and home libraries!!

Super Cute! Lots of good info.
The pictures are so vivid and made from different textured paper. The book tells a lot about animals in ways that children can easily grasp. Another home run for Jenkins when it comes to animal books! I love that at the end of the book it tells you more about all of the different types of animals in the whole story.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

What do you do with a tail like this?
Fantastic read a loud book in the afternoonsn with a small group of children. The kids really enjoy guessing what animals belong to what tails. Fantastic detail in the illustrations. It's a really well written book and so accessible. The kids challenge themselves prior to having the story read to them, to see if they can guess which animal's tail they can name.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
