Text and illustrations show animals that hang and dangle and remind readers that they sometimes move like animals.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-As much as readers may "dig and burrow," these series titles are likely to leave them to "hang and dangle." They are supposed to encourage children to "think about how different animals move-and why." If repetition of two similar verbs in tandem with a variety of common and exotic animals is helpful to curricular goals, then they are adequate additions. However, there is no discussion of "why" the animals do what they do. Readers are merely told that moles "make a mess when they dig and burrow" and "Some crabs will die if they don't-." Rabbits in a burrow are warned, "Hungry foxes also like to dig and burrow." While this may explain why the fox is digging, what about the rabbits? While Dig and Burrow is short on science, Hang and Dangle has left it out altogether in favor of stating the obvious-sloths barely move, monkeys use their tails, and elephants sip water up their trunks while hanging and/or dangling. Axworthy provides colorful, energetic, amusing cartoon creatures with mostly happy smiles as they engage in their appointed activities. These titles may be acceptable read-alouds for audience participation, but they fail to achieve their stated goal or earn their nonfiction designations.
