This lively book proves that an animal can do all kinds of things! It encourages children to notice the characteristics and behavior of a world of different creatures: from gnawing, swimming beavers to spinning, climbing spiders to hopping, baby-toting kangaroos. What Can an Animal Do? is a lively introduction to observing, comparing, and describing—all things budding scientists can do, too. What Can an Animal Do? is part of the I Wonder Why book series, written to ignite the curiosity of children in Grades K–3 while encouraging them to become avid readers. These books explore the marvels of animals, plants, and other phenomena related to science and nature. Included in each edition is a Parent/Teacher Handbook with coordinating activities. The I Wonder Why series is written by an award-winning science educator and published by NSTA Kids, a division of NSTA Press.
