An appealing introduction to the animal kingdom.

You won't believe the amazing things that animals do -- how they communicate, how they find food, how they take care of their families.

Amazing Things Animals Do is jam-packed with astounding animal facts designed to introduce children to the fascinating wonders of animal behavior. It is a compilation of all four titles from the series of the same name: Little Wonders: Animal Babies and Their Families, Time to Eat: Animals Who Hide and Save Their Food, Side by Side: Animals Who Help Each Other, and Wild Talk: How Animals Talk to Each Other.

  • Some tiny finches eat their dinners off the backs of giant Galapagos tortoises?
  • An elephant's low rumble can travel right across the African plains?
  • Sea otters wrap their babies in seaweed so they won't float away in the water?
  • American alligator babies travel in their mothers' huge mouths?

Cheerful watercolor artwork and a picture book format make this title especially appealing for young children and a wonderful resource for learning about the animal world for the first time.

A Who's Who guide at the end of the book provides additional details about each species and its habitat, encouraging additional questioning and research for the older child.
