Children's Literature - Carrie Hane HungFind out how the honeyguide birds, the honey badgers, and the goshawks use their brains to locate food. Learn how some animals like the baby green turtle use their instincts to survive. There are fantastic color photographs throughout the book and many fascinating, brief descriptions about the clever things that animals learn to do or do instinctively. Readers will find two types of sidebars, the "Actual Size" and the "Record Breaker." The "Actual Size" sidebar has a picture of a tape measure next to the animal to illustrate the size of the creature along with information about it. The "Record Breaker" has incredible information like migration or brain weight about select creatures; however, readers may need to infer how some of the records are related to the theme of the book. There is a glossary at the back of the book which lists and describes words found in bold print in the main text. An index provides a quick check for locating information about particular animals. At the back of the book is a list providing some ideas for activities to explore. For those children who wish to learn about other interesting animal characteristics, this book is part of the "Animal Opposites" series of four books which features other animal traits like size, speed, and strength.
