The animal kingdom offers a special fascination for children because so many of the cozy rituals they share at home are echoed in nature. In this beguiling approach to biology, middle graders can learn how animals eat, sleep and learn from birth to maturity. Fourteen species including the Least Shrew, the Mexican Free-Tailed Bat and the Hooded Seal are presented in detailed illustrations and a scrupulously researched text. The writing is appropriate for eight year olds but interest holds for older children as well. Activity guide available.From the Inside Flap:
(back cover) Mothers and babies. Babies and mothers. They are everywhere – in caves, burrows, dens, fields, kitchens and bedrooms. All babies have to eat, learn, grow and mature. Each one must embark on the journey to maturity, but the path varies dramatically depending on whether the young mammal is a bear or a bat, a shrew or a seal, a koala or a kid. Whether youngsters must learn to hunt in the deep blue sea, catch their prey in mid-flight, or gather lunch high in the trees, learning to find food and master the skills for survival are important parts of growing up. This fascinating introduction to the world of mammals shows how fourteen species mature from helpless infants into self-sufficient adults. As the book explores the many ways baby animals grow, the reader develops a keen sense of what makes mammals special. An array of fascinating facts, not found elsewhere, adds to the fun.
