What's a great way for kids to learn about learning? Tell them how a sea otter takes swimming lessons, or how a chick learns to peck! Short entries portray how 12 different animals are taught various \"lessons.\" Chicks learn to peck to get their bellies full; a prairie dog pup learns how to spot and warn others about predators; a bottlenose dolphin learns how to recognize its mother\'s signature call; a young beaver picks up the finer points of dam-building. And just like human kids, what comes after lessons? Play! Smart and informative: Offers loads of interesting-to-kids information about nature and science in brief, easily absorbed entries paired with striking illustrations. Institutional appeal: An ideal library-and-classroom selection with credible use in the Common Core curriculum. Stylish coffee table-worthy illustrations elevate this from the pack of most nonfiction fare. A book that travels well outside of school and home: Many of the book\'s animals can be observed in accessible outdoor environments, while others can be found in zoos. The book offers an excellent starting point for field trips and casual exploring. Offers cross-sell opportunities for the author\'s well-received nonfiction picture book, Eggs 1,2,3. Named a finalist for the Cybils Award. Sunny-side up praise for Janet Halfmann\'s Eggs 1,2,3:
