This bright, colorful book explores the wild and wonderful variety of tongues in the world’s animals. Discover long tongues, sticky tongues, trick tongues, tube tongues, black tongues, blue tongues, red tongues, fork tongues, spike tongues, brush tongues, straw tongues, smelling tongues, curly tongues, cooling tongues, heating tongues, cleaning tongues, talking tongues, glow-in-the-dark tongues, and so many more.
Snakes and some lizards use their long, flickering tongues to smell predators and prey, while chameleons use the sticky tip of their long, stretchy tongues to catch bugs for dinner. Crocodiles use special glands on their tongues to remove salt from their bodies, while newborn whales and dolphins use small bumps on their tongues to hang on to mom while she swims.
This book also includes fun, easy experiments that illustrate the way animal tongues work, and cool tongue facts to gross out family and friends.

I love giraffes, so there was no way I could walk past this book without picking it up. What fun! Adorable and hilarious photographs, plus really fascinating facts about critters of all kinds. Makes me wish I still had a grade-schooler at home. Parents, this would be a WONDERFUL gift to contribute to a classroom or library.
Who'd a thought this subject could be bright, fun, silly, and even interesting? Really a great book for kids.
This book really connects with kids, and the experiments make them think about the material in a different way. I replace it every time it's stolen from my classroom library.
