Summary: The Jenkins-Page team takes on animal movement, asking if you’ve ever seen a walking octopus or a swimming elephant. After the page on the walking octopus, for example, comes a two-page spread of several other animals that walk in some unusual way. The illustrations are done in Jenkins’ inimitable cut-paper style with amazing details. The last two pages include thumbnail pictures of all the animals with a few sentences of additional information for each. 40 pages; ages 4-7.
Pros: This award-winning team just keeps cranking out beautifully-illustrated, engaging science picture books. Kids will love browsing through the pictures and descriptions, or listening to the book as a fun read-aloud.
Cons: The format is nothing new, similar to other Jenkins books like What Do You Do With a Tail Like This? and How Many Ways Can You Catch a Fly?
