Descrizione

A red-lipped batfish waddles across the sea floor on its fins, searching for small sea creatures to eat. Other animals may fly or glide, or jet-propel themselves to get around. These creatures come equipped with legs, wings, or tentacles, and they often move from place to place in surprising ways. In the latest eye-catching escape into the kingdom of Animalia, Caldecott Honor-winning team Jenkins and Page show how animals roll, fly, walk, leap, climb, swim and even flip! This fascinating and fun illustrated nonfiction melds science, art, biology, and the environment together in a detailed and well-researched book about how animals move in our world today.

    This book shows how animals fly, roll, walk or leap, glide or get around. It talks about how they eat small sea creature to survive. Cute little animal book.
  • (4/5)
    Have you ever heard of a walking octopus or tiptoeing bat? A crab that can climb trees or a jet-propelled fish? Caldecott honor-winner Steve Jenkins and co-author Robin Page have once again found fascinating and unusual elements of the animal world to share with the youngest animal enthusiasts. Flying Frogs and Walking Fish focuses on animals that move in unusual ways. Written in expository nonfiction, Jenkins uses his signature torn- and cut-paper collage illustrations to bring each animal to life in great detail and with vivid colors. In their familiar writing style, Jenkins and Page have divided the book into sections by type of movement. Each section is introduced with a full page spread dedicated to one animal followed by a page featuring several other animals that also move in similar ways. The nonfiction features in this text include subject headings and animal names are in bold type. There is a biography with additional reading suggestions and an appendix at the end of the book featuring a brief paragraph about each animal in the book, giving a little more information, including habitat, size and description. A beautiful and informative addition to Jenkins’ unique and appealing animal informational texts. An engaging nonfiction addition to an animal storytime. This book would also be a great starting point for an animal research project. Recommended for animal enthusiasts in prekindergarten through 3rd grade.
