The award-winning team of What Do You Do with a Tail Like This? and Move! once again create a nonfiction picture book that is amazingly beautiful, fun, and filled with all sorts of interesting facts. Here, Steve Jenkins and Robin Page investigate sibling relationships throughout the animal kingdom. In this book you will learn that anteaters are always only children and nine-banded armadillos are always born as identical quadruplets. You will also learn that falcons play-hunt in the sky andthat hyena cubs fight to the death. This is the perfect book for animal lovers young and old!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Most talk about animal families focuses on the parent-child relationship, but this riveting picture book, illustrated in Jenkins' signature style, is packed with amazing facts about how young animals nurture one other or compete for survival and leave home. Depicted in crisp, gorgeous, cut-and-torn-paper collages set against lots of white space, the subjects range from female African elephants that stay with the herd and help take care of their younger siblings, to two young grizzlies that grow up together, then fight one another until one must leave. Also pictured are millions of termite brothers and sisters, living together in a mound as tall as a four-story building. Readers will love sharing this, even if they can't sympathize with black widow spiders that eat their siblings. The sibling focus is a way to include a wealth of fascinating science, which is expanded in the detailed back matter that presents more facts about each animal. Children older as well as younger than the target audience will want to thumb through this fascinating picture book.--Rochman, Hazel Copyright 2008 Booklist"
