Booktalking "Animalogy: Animal Analogies" by Marianne Berkes
Feathery chicks, furry bears. Beavers build, and spiders spin. Frogs are amphibians, and moose are mammals. Robins have wings, and goldfish have fins. Ants are tiny, and hippos are big. There is much dichotomy in the animal world, and this book helps kids learn about the differences between animals and the great variety that exists in nature.
The illustrations are gorgeous, intricate, and filled with amazing detail. This visually stunning book is quite naturalistic.
