A collection of facts about how many different animals behave in relation to courtship, mating, and caring for offspring.

Grade 3-6-An entertaining series that's full of colorful photos and fascinating snippets of animal factoids. While it may be delightfully "icky" to learn that a sea cucumber can expel its digestive tract under stress, it would be nice to be told just what a sea cucumber is. And on being told that "Eels live as adults in the rivers of Europe, but they reproduce in the Sargasso Sea," the curious of mind might wonder about eastern American freshwater eels as well. Full of such insubstantial (but beguiling) tidbits, these slim books will serve best in a classroom library, where the questions they should engender might lead to personal or class research, and a delightfully informative trip to the library.
