This richly illustrated big book of animal behavior allows kids to delve into the animal world like never before.
Animals live in hundreds of different ways, some of them quite extraordinary. Kids will learn how animals survive in a world where living is rarely easy. From birds and mammals to amphibians and insects, a large range of creatures are covered.
Through accessible explanations and hundreds of vibrant illustrations, budding zoologists will find out how animals care for their young, how they battle for life-either as predators or prey, and how they spend their lives-in groups, in partnerships, or alone.

Grade 5-9 - Well-conceived cover art draws readers into this investigation of animal behavior. Inside, brief insets of fascinating information about amphibians, reptiles, salt and freshwater creatures, insects, spiders, birds, reptiles, but mostly mammals, are presented with brilliant art. Francis zooms in to illustrate and skillfully highlight the text. Although this fluidly written title will widen children's understanding of the amazing diversity of life on Earth, the information is scattered. While each animal and its behavior is consistently compared and contrasted to human behavior, no one creature is featured throughout the five chapters: "Starting Out in Life" (mating, birth, and parental care); "Sharing" (which includes symbiotic and cooperative relationships); "Fighting to Live" (encompassing basic threats to a variety of species); "Defenses" (demonstrating the hunting skills of predators and survival techniques of prey); and "Now You See Me..." (survival techniques involving display and camouflage). As a result, the focus is loose, which limits this attractive presentation to the browsing shelves. - Nancy Call, Santa Cruz Public Libraries, Aptos, CA
