Animal Ears - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

Book Overview:

Hearing is an important sense for animals’ survival. Ears give animals vital information to help them find food or listen for predators ready to attack. This continuation of Mary Holland’s award-winning Animal Anatomy and Adaptations series features a wide variety of animal ears and how animals use them. Did you know that some animals have ears on their legs? Like the eyes, mouths, legs, and tails featured in previous books, animal ears come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes—a perfect match for each animal’s needs.

My Review:

Did you know that a katydid's ears are on its legs?  Or that beavers have special flaps in their ears that act like ear plugs?  Readers will learn all this and more in Animal Ears.  With beautiful realistic pictures of different animal species, this book shows the way many animals use their ears.  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 ears, learn the different reason uses that animals might use their ears.  This section explains how ears hear, and answers some questions about animal ears.

Animal Ears is a Spring 2018 release by Arbordale Publishing.

"Leave a comment on this blog post with whether or not you think you have good hearing. (Tidbit: Mine is hit and miss. I've had six ear tube surgeries.)" I think my hearing is quite good, almost too good. I've never blasted my eardrums with loud music, so that probably helps. --I'm not sure what "ear tube surgeries" are, but that sounds awful--I hope they helped!

I have a perforated eardrum in my right ear that has not been repaired. I can hear well out of my left ear.

My hearing is still good.

Patricia Green said...

I do not have good hearing. I did ear candling a couple times. I don't care what others say...it worked for me. I can hear better in my right ear usually. After candling, I could hear equally well in both ears. I need to do that again.

I feel my hearing is pretty good. I can hear things from distances in my house. However, most of the time to avoid any noise bothering me, I need to sound it out with a fan at night or turn up my TV's volume to block them.

I have to have excellent hearing because my son is nonverbal and autistic. He never ever cried as a baby. He's almost four now and I always have to listen for 'his' sounds

i went and had a hearing test done and it was found out that I can hear women's voices (tones) better than I can hear men's deeper voice tones.

Vikki Billings said...

Sand said...

I also had the tube surgery as a kid. I would always have issues as a kid with my ears, ear infections all the time and swimmer's ear every summer. I think my hearing is good now, but I do worry because of all the issues I had as a kid.
