Tongues in all shapes, sizes and textures!
This bright, colorful book explores the wild and wonderful variety of tongues in the world’s animals. Discover long tongues, sticky tongues, trick tongues, tube tongues, black tongues, blue tongues, red tongues, fork tongues, spike tongues, brush tongues, straw tongues, smelling tongues, curly tongues, cooling tongues, heating tongues, cleaning tongues, talking tongues, glow-in-the-dark tongues, and so many more.
Snakes and some lizards use their long, flickering tongues to smell predators and prey, while chameleons use the sticky tip of their long, stretchy tongues to catch bugs for dinner. Crocodiles use special glands on their tongues to remove salt from their bodies, while newborn whales and dolphins use small bumps on their tongues to hang on to mom while she swims.
This book also includes fun, easy experiments that illustrate the way animal tongues work, and cool tongue facts to gross out family and friends.

Grade 2–5—Animals' tongues have different colors and shapes; these differences and the reasons for them are explored in Cusick's clearly written, conversational style. Species included range from the everyday dogs and cats to the unusual—blue-tongued skinks and hummingbird moths that can have probosces longer than their bodies. Each animal is introduced on a spread that includes at least two eye-catching, close-up photos that add lots of interest and appeal. Additional text along the bottom of each spread encourages readers to "Test It Out" (conduct a simple activity) or "Guess What?" (consider another interesting fact). This fascinating book concludes with "Tongue Trivia," fascinating information about the tongue-eating louse, the nudibranchs, glow-in-the-dark fung-tongues, and more.—Christine Markley, Washington Elementary School, Barto, PA END
