9781550375640: What's the Difference?: 10 Animal Look-Alikes

What's the difference between a butterfly and a moth? A frog and a toad? An alligator and a crocodile? Curious kids will enjoy discovering the differences between animals that frequently confuse us.

What's the Difference? compares ten animal pairs, from insects to mammals. While both tortoises and turtles are shelled reptiles, a tortoise has sturdy, elephant-like feet for walking on land, while a turtle swims using flippers. Cheetahs and leopards are both large, spotted cats; one difference is that cheetahs have long legs and run very fast, while leopards count on their stealth to sneak up behind their prey.

Compare:

  • Bees and Wasps
  • Butterflies and Moths
  • Crows and Ravens
  • Alligators and Crocodiles
  • Frogs and Toads
  • Tortoises and Turtles
  • Cheetahs and Leopards
  • Donkeys and Mules
  • Dolphins and Porpoises
  • Rabbits and Hares

Colorful, clear illustrations place the animals vividly in their natural environments, and the layout of the book places them side by side for easy comparison. What's the Difference? was developed in conjunction with the Canadian Museum of Nature. At the end of the book, a key to the animal pairs and an index for quick reference is provided.

Review:

“While this book has an obvious place in the classroom ... it would be irresistible to the casual reader at home, evoking many mumbled comments like, ‘I didn’t know that!’” —Canadian Book Review Annual

“Great illustrations with just enough text to really make someone aware of what the differences are ...” —CBC Radio This Morning
