About this title
An introduction to the oddities found in the animal kingdom explores the diverse types of animals' coverings, including fur, feathers, scales, and skin, and explains what makes animals different and similar, as well as other issues.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2-- Two brief photo essays. Both books feature a paragraph of smoothly written text and attractive full-color photographs that clearly depict the diversity found within the animal kingdom. Horns is devoted to different types of headgear and tusks. Similarities and differences between Skin, Scales, Feathers, and Fur are discussed as well as comparisons of various animals. Fur and Feathers (Watts, 1989; o.p.) by Henry Pluckrose has more detail, but is not as well written. For older readers, Dorothy Patent's Feathers (Cobblehill, 1992) is a fine presentation of the subject. Rauzon has presented effective introductions that are perhaps short on information, but are eminently browsable.
