Anmal Tails - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Arbordale Publishing.  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.


Book Overview:

Readers will be fascinated by the many ways animals use their tails: to move on land, swim, warn others, steer, hold on to things, keep warm, balance, fly, attract a mate, and even to defend themselves! Apparently, tails are not just for wagging when happy. Following Animal Eyes, Animal Mouths (NSTA/CBC Outstanding Trade Science Award-winning book), and Animal Legs, Mary Holland continues her photographic Animal Anatomy and Adaptations series by exploring the many ways animals use their tails.

My Review:

Did you know that woodpeckers have stiff tails to brace themselves against tree branches and trunks?  Or that a beaver uses its tail to warn other beavers of danger?  Readers will learn all this and more in Animal Tails.  With beautiful realistic pictures, this book shows the way many animals use their tails.  It's interesting and educational.

The 'For Creative Minds' section in the back of the book gives readers the chance to match animals with their tails, and gives detailed descriptions of physical and behavioral adaptations of tails.

Animal Tails is a Fall 2017 release by Arbordale Publishing.

Win It!

One person will win an Animal Tails children's book.
