This vividly illustrated book, aimed at children aged 6 and older, shines a light on the animal kingdom like never before. Perfect for young animal lovers, The Surprising Lives of Animals is a captivating reading experience that will amaze children and deepen their understanding ...of the world around them. Did you know that some animals giggle and play just like us? Or that certain animals build their homes, stockpile their food, and use tools? In this fascinating book you'll learn about the things that humans and animals have in common. From team work, exercise and self-care to dancing and getting into trouble, you'll discover that, actually, animals are a lot like you! Visiting underground burrows and grassy savannahs, watery realms and towering tree tops, this book will take you around the world on a journey of discovery. Meet the monkeys who love to take baths, or the penguins who toboggan for fun. Hear the stories of escaping honey badgers, sneaky spiders and clever crows. Or find out if animals can really talk. You'll see plenty of Earth's creatures, from creepy crawlies to mega mammals, and you'll learn about their lives, habitats, characteristics and behaviours - and uncover what makes each of them so surprisingly similar to us humans. Look out for `Scientist Spotlight' boxes too, to learn about some important scientists and conservationists, such as Dame Jane Goodall.
