So wonderfully designed are these creaturs! Webbed feet for propelling the creature through the water. Talons (claws) for birds of prey to capture small animals. Feet that taste. Feet that cling. Feet that climb.
Caterpillers have six real legs they keep when they become butterflies or moths but in their larvae stage they have prolegs. I didn't know that!
I was simply intrigued by all these fascinating bits of information and the wonderful photographs that show the details. The book's design is perfect in my opinion. The text is black on a creamy white background and is in side panels on the pages. This leaves the pictures clear without overlaying text and the text in sidebars is short-lined making it easy to read.
In the back of the book there are a few pages that provide more information that will engage the creative mind and active learner. These are treats that each of the Arbordale Publishing books has so that your child can further pursue knowledge or experiment with the information they just learned.
About the author/illustrator: Mary Holland is a naturalist, nature photographer, columnist, and award-winning author with a lifelong passion for natural history.
