NEW Kids Picture Books: Day 9

Flying Frogs and Walking Fish by Steve Jenkins & Robin Page. 
May 2016. 40 pages.

From Amazon: "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."

My thoughts: This is a non-fiction book and my kids love it! It works its way through seven different ways that animals can move (leaping, swimming, flying, etc), but introduces each way with an animal you wouldn't think could move that way! Who knew that an octopus could walk or a spider could roll? Then the next page features 6-7 more animals who move that way. It's very unique information that I've never seen presented in any other non-fiction book.

Recommended Age: 4-7 years
