SkinBook - 2007
The natural world is nothing if not diverse. Animals have developed sense organs and body parts of all shapes and sizes, necessary adaptations that aid them in their struggle to survive. All Kinds of celebrates this great variety, taking readers on a guided tour of the main animal groupings-insects, fish, birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians-exploring the ways their various representatives see, hear, smell, taste, feel, and generally move about the world around them. Bright full-color photographs offer an up-close view of these animals and the anatomical wonders they are equipped with. Numerous sidebars introduce curious creatures and little known facts about the many life-forms that make the planet their home. Author Sara Swan Miller draws on her years of experience teaching young people to present these vibrant titles offering a lively overview of the sensual world of nature.
