What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

A nonfiction picture book about the incredible power of bizarre adaptations to keep mammals alive and thriving! In Stink Fights, Earwax, and Other Marvelous Mammal Adaptations, children ages 5 to 8 learn how lemurs settle arguments and how earwax helps a whale’s sense of hearing, along with a host of other deliciously strange-but-true tales! The lively conversational tone used to deliver information on the unique adaptations of many different mammals engages a child’s sense of wonder while introducing the crucial concept of adaptation. A haiku poem at the beginning of the book offers a language-based entry into science details. A great choice both as a read aloud and for early readers who are curious about science.
