Thoughtful Thursday

Creature Features: 25 Animals Explain Why They Look the Way They Do by Steve Jenkins and Robin Page takes the tactic of 'straight from the horse's mouth.'  From birds to rodents to seals to fish, these animals answer tough questions about themselves.
At the end there is a line-up of the animals that shows their size in comparison to a human and where they live and each animal's diet, with a bibliography included.
The illustrations are torn and cut paper collage. The life-like pictures are fascinating, children will love to look at them, they will be intrigued by the facts about each animal and I know there will be a few 'eeeeewwww' sounds when I share this book with Kindergarten to Third grade students.  Each page, mostly, has an animal, so there's just the right amount of info.
