SIMILAR BUT DIFFERENT IN THE ANIMAL KINGDOM
What are the similarities and differences between alligators and crocodiles? Which has a U-shaped snout, and which one has a V-shaped snout? What are the similarities and differences between fleas and ticks? Which one is not an insect?
Learn about some of the most fascinating animals in the world in the new 496-page book Similar but Different in the Animal Kingdom. Learn about the similarities and differences between 25 sets of animals: bees and wasps, frogs and toads, gophers and hamsters, falcons and hawks, herons and storks, ants and termites, donkeys and mules, and more. “Fast Facts” provide an instant list of the animals’ similarities and differences. Information includes their habitats, diets, interesting facts, and fallacies.
This educational science book for children, youth, schools, libraries, and anyone interested in animals makes for fun and educational reading. “If you could talk to the animals, this would be the book your children should read. We are thrilled to announce its release,” said Robert Fletcher, CEO of Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency.
