Animals at Work
How Animals Build, Dig, Fish and TrapBook - 2001
Did you know that termites build towers as tall as houses? Or that ogre-faced spiders throw net traps over their prey? Whether it's to gather food, build shelter or attract a mate, animals work in unexpected ways. Kids can try activities that demonstrate some surprising animal skills, like blowing bubbles the way a spittlebug does to hide itself from predators. Or mastering the half hitch and running knots that the weaverbird ties (with its feet!) when it builds a nest. Using concise language and realistic illustrations, this title in the Animal Behavior series takes a resourceful approach to exploring animal life.
