What Animal Names Can Tell Us

Book - 2002
Rate this:
From the woolly monkey to the woolly bear, from the blue-tongued skink to the blue marlin, there's so much to discover in an animal's name. An animal's name can tell you where the animal is from, like the African elephant. Its name can also tell you what the animal eats, like the rat snake, or what it looks like, such as the walking stick, or even what it sounds like, such as the whooping crane or the howler monkey. In this celebration of the natural world, Keith DuQuette uses simple language and stunning illustrations to show us the amazing members of the animal kingdom who embody the evocative names we give them.
