Overview

Get up close and personal with creatures from the wild in this stunningly designed photographic book, shot by a National Geographic photographer. Each image offers an intimate view of an animal's face that will engage and fascinate children of all ages. As they look again, they'll learn about all sorts of wildlife and their fantastic features: a furry cat's whiskers help it find its way in the dark; a chicken's feathers protect its thin, sensitive skin; a chameleon's eyes actually swivel; and an elephant uses its long trunk to pick up food and give itself a shower. The varied menagerie ranges from squirrels to starfish. It's a truly appealing package.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-From crabs and cows to sloths and squirrels, the author's photos provide an up-close view of some amazing faces. Beautifully detailed images allow readers to see minute details, such as the leathery scales on a lizard's face or the dirt-encrusted mouth of a sloth. Brightly colored backgrounds highlight the simple text that describes how the various animals use their eyes, ears, noses, and mouths. "Don't be fooled by my toothy grin," says the alligator, which uses its tremendous jaws to hunt for a meal. Short, clever poems mark the start of each new section. Readers will enjoy seeing familiar creatures, such as dogs and goats, and be intrigued with the less-familiar faces of the katydid and hedgehog. A delightful walk on the wild side.-Cassandra A. Lopez, Northfield Elementary School, Ellicott City, MD Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
