Animals and Me

Readers can measure the sorts of things they're good at—swimming, biting, sleeping, etc.—against their animal kingdom counterparts in this lively guide. Numerous photos are set against crisp, colorful backdrops as the book explores skin, movement, various senses ("Some animals, including birds of prey, can see more clearly than we can"), and growth. The brief tidbits, active typography (that lets a tiger "Roar" and a rabbit "Thump!"), and emphasis on humans along with animals should hold kids' attention. Ages 5–8. (Sept.)
