This nonfiction book explains how different kinds of animals move around in a fun and colorful way. From dogs to penguins to elephants, this book blends science with story telling very well.

This book shows how animals fly, roll, walk or leap, glide or get around. It talks about how they eat small sea creature to survive. Cute little animal book. ( )

Have you ever heard of a walking octopus or tiptoeing bat? A crab that can climb trees or a jet-propelled fish? Caldecott honor-winner Steve Jenkins and co-author Robin Page have once again found fascinating and unusual elements of the animal world to share with the youngest animal enthusiasts. Flying Frogs and Walking Fish focuses on animals that move in unusual ways. Written in expository nonfiction, Jenkins uses his signature torn- and cut-paper collage illustrations to bring each animal to life in great detail and with vivid colors. In their familiar writing style, Jenkins and Page have divided the book into sections by type of movement. Each section is introduced with a full page spread dedicated to one animal followed by a page featuring several other animals that also move in similar ways. The nonfiction features in this text include subject headings and animal names are in bold type. There is a biography with additional reading suggestions and an appendix at the end of the book featuring a brief paragraph about each animal in the book, giving a little more information, including habitat, size and description.

A beautiful and informative addition to Jenkins’ unique and appealing animal informational texts. An engaging nonfiction addition to an animal storytime. This book would also be a great starting point for an animal research project. Recommended for animal enthusiasts in prekindergarten through 3rd grade. ( )
