What did you like about the book? This little book covers a multitude of subjects, from Migration to Adaptation to Animal Antics.  I love the cover with the whale jumping out of the ocean and the seagull!  My favorite page of this book is about the Sea Turtles that take a midnight journey to lay their eggs.  The illustrations are so cute and detailed- Courtney-Tickle did a wonderful job on this book.  I know they say not to judge a book by its cover, but I did and I am not disappointed!

Anything you didn’t like about it?  There is nothing I didn’t like about this book.

To whom would you recommend this book?  This is a great book for those who love science.  Some read-a-likes are “Things That Grow” by Libby Walden and “Wilderness: An Interactive Atlas of Animals” by Hannah Pang.

Who should buy this book? Children’s libraries

Where would you shelve it? juvenile non-fiction

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? no
