Informative and interesting text tells all the different ways in which animals move. All types of animals are included from all over the world. This book does not have as many experiments and demonstrations as the others in this series but the few it did have were simple and enjoyable. Large bold, bright illustrations are appealing. My 7yo enjoyed this book very much, as he did all the others in the series. Recommended
