Woodpeckers (Amazing Animals Series)by Kate Riggs
A basic exploration of the appearance, behavior, and habitat of woodpeckers, nature's drummers. Also included is a story from folklore explaining how woodpeckers take good care of their young. From humpbacked camels to drumming woodpeckers, and from fast-flying hummingbirds to slow-moving tortoises, the world of animals is wonderfully diverse. This popular and newly expanded series continues traveling the planet to study these and other fascinating animals. Beautiful photos are paired with accessible text to examine the featured creature's appearance, habitat, behaviors, and life cycle. Each book also presents a folk story that people have used to help explain the animal's appearance or behavior.
