Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger and Marilyn Courtot
Adapted from Animal Senses (1998), this book provides a fresh look at the myriad world of animals, specifically how they use their senses to protect, defend, and assert themselves. It takes an interactive approach by suggesting that the reader compare their senses to those of various animals—for instance, comparing your field of vision to that of a frog, or changing the shape of your ears to those of a bat. Some animals have different ways of smelling or hearing. For example, a snake smells with its tongue and a cricket has ears on its legs. Our eyes see what is generally in front of us; frogs have the ability to see almost 360 degrees. Some animals use one eye to hunt for food and eat while the other eye watches for danger. Hearing can help animals listen for friends and foe, search for food and in some cases, find a mate. Bats use sound to find prey and to navigate. Elephants have big ears, which can help them keep cool and also be flapped to warn of danger. The illustrations are accurate, and add interest and a fun touch to this area of science. A Level 3 book in the " Kids Can Read" series.
