This well illustrated book looks at the tails of mammals, insects, reptiles, and fish. Through words and illustrations, readers explore tails and their functions. For example, most critters have tails but the appendages are quite different physically, as is how the animal uses it. There is some interesting trivia and a few experiments children can try.
Lots of great photography, fun facts, and a chance for kids to experiment with the functions of tails make this perfect for fun reading, in the classroom or for home schooling.
None, really. I only wished it covered more creatures.
I let a friend of mine share this book with her class of second graders and they really loved it,
I really enjoyed this book and learned a lot about how animals use their tails. There was a lot of information that I had never read before.
This nonfiction picture book offers scientific information and then gives kids a chance to use the knowledge.
Lots of nonfiction picture books provide information, what sets this one apart is that kids can try out and "test" the function of different animal tails.
