A new must book to have in a classroom. Very interesting facts, I didn’t even know about. Children will enjoy learning about the animals’ structures and their eye functions.

I enjoyed this book - and learned a lot! Although I knew that different animals had different eyes, I never really thought to learn about it. This book changed that. I liked the informational illustrations. I can see this being useful in the classroom, mostly as an free read book that students can choose on their own. The language is appropriate for the earlier reader.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0547959079, Hardcover)

In his latest eye-popping work of picture book nonfiction, the Caldecott Honor–winning author-illustrator Steve Jenkins explains how for most animals, eyes are the most important source of information about the world in a biological sense. The simplest eyes—clusters of light-sensitive cells—appeared more than one billion years ago, and provided a big survival advantage to the first creatures that had them. Since then, animals have evolved an amazing variety of eyes, along with often surprising ways to use them.
