Kingfisher Readers L2: Amazing Animal Senses by Claire Llewellyn and Thea Feldman

Animals use their senses in many ways. Sharks use smell to help them hunt their prey, butterflies taste food with their feet, and search dogs use smell to help find people who are lost. Young readers will discover how different animals use their different senses and strengths to survive in the wild. Filled with intricate diagrams, content-area vocabulary, and content-rich text, Amazing Animal Senses will simultaneously entertain and educate, while helping young readers develop reading autonomy.
