Explore the animal world, from aardvark to zebu!
Discover hundreds of animals, great and small. Lion and lizard, whale and wombat. Learn one wild fact about each animal. (Did you know that gorillas yawn when they are nervous?) Look carefully, because for each letter of the alphabet, one animal is pictured eight times. Why 8? Come inside and find out!
Skillfully blending counting and matching elements into an animal-themed abecedary, Cooper invites readers to spot eight animals for each letter, nestled alongside other creatures whose names begin with the same letter. The G page is fairly packed with Cooper's handsome portraits of a gazelle, gerbil, gibbon, giraffe, gnat, goose, gorilla, etc. (plus eight goats). Readers won't have trouble spotting the eight xeruses, though; they're the sole representatives for X. The animals' names run along the bottom of each page, and a closing list offers intriguing details about the more than 150 creatures Cooper includes, while helping identify the less-familiar quoll, uakari, and yabby, among others. Ages 3 7.
