What does it feel like to “see” with your ears like a bat or go through a full body transformation like a frog? Can you wriggle in and out of tight places like an octopus, camouflage yourself like a leopard, or do a waggle dance like a honeybee? This creative and beautifully illustrated interactive guide makes learning about animals fun for children ages 6 and up. Fifteen animals explain their amazing feats and invite kids to enter their world by mimicking their behavior — an imaginative approach to learning that fosters curiosity, empathy, and dramatic play.

“Wild things who learn best by doing will appreciate the imaginative play . . . this is all about the action. As a bonus, masks can be downloaded from the publisher's website. . . .  full of opportunities for participation.” — Kirkus Reviews

“An excellent nonfiction treat of information and dramatic play all rolled into one! ... A book that will be well-worn, loved and studied by animal-loving children ... Oh, how I have my fingers crossed for a follow up book with even more animals!” —
