Nature is filled with animals. Whether you go exploring in your own backyard or like to climb mountaintops, you're sure to encounter birds, insects, reptiles, amphibians, fish, and all kinds of amazing mammals along the way. But did you know that a queen bee can lay up to 1,000 eggs in a day? Or that huge, dinosaur-like dragonflies used to exist? Organized in a see, learn, do format, The Kids' Ultimate Animal Adventure Book first lays the groundwork for observing and learning about animals--from their behavior and habitat to the truths and myths about them. Then it jumps into lots of animal-related activities, like going owling, planting a garden for butterflies, and catching frogs.
