A Cool Summer Tail - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

When summer heats up, animals find ways to stay cool. In A Cool Summer Tail animals wonder how humans stay cool too. Do they dig under the dirt, grow special summer hair, or only come out at night? This companion to the popular A Warm Winter Tail features many of same animals but this time, with their summer adaptations, offering an important “compare and contrast” opportunity.

A Cool Summer Tail is a Spring 2014 release by Arbordale Publishing.

My Review:

This book features an array of animals as they ask their mamas what humans do to stay cool. The animals wonder if humans perch in shades, grow new hair, flatten their wings, or other things that animals and critters do to stay cool. The questions are asked and answered in rhythmic form. A Cool Summer Tail is a good way to teach youngsters how different animals brave the heat. The 'For Creative Minds' section in the back of the book enhances learning with animals and summer adaptation fun facts, and summer and winter adaptations: compare and contrast. There's also a Summer Animal and Animal Classes Matching Activity. It makes learning about adaptations fun!

Win It!

One person will win a book copy of A Cool Summer Tail.

We like to go swimming and some times we have sponge fights which is easier to clean up than balloons and if the yard needs watering we will play in the sprinkler that is a lot of fun.
