Overview

Animals fight for many reasons—to protect territories, offspring, and mates, and sometimes just to warn against bad behavior—and in many different ways. Giraffes, for instance, attack each other by ramming heads, while turkeys and camels wrestle with their necks, and zebras fight with kicks and bites. Monkey fights look and sound ferocious, but are usually just talk. More than two dozen animals are presented in action photos, while their fighting behaviors are explored in fun, whimsical verse.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - BriAnne Baxley MLIS
Animals are amazing creatures that when studied can only be called one of a kind. With unique forms of survival along with some similar traits it is easy to see why many are fascinated by these creatures. With this sense of wonder Animal Fights brings to its readers various facts on how many animals defend themselves in their own habitats. Written in poetic verses each page includes a new animal along with a picture of two of that particular animal fighting amongst themselves. Some animals that are not included within the written portion are highlighted at the end of the book as a picture in a simple layout spread. This book would be a great classroom library edition or used to enhance a classroom project. Due to the format of the material readers have the ability to interact with the text by reading straight through or by visiting pages in the order of their own liking. Reviewer: BriAnne Baxley, MLIS
