Written in rhyming prose the educational information is delivered with a touch of humor. The bird in the crocodile’s mouth doing his bit of “dentistry” and the barnacles atop the back of the sea turtle are just a couple of the delightful illustrations.
As with other books in the Arbordale series, there is a “For Creative Minds” section at the back of the book with more in depth information and activities. Example:
Commensalism: One partner rides on the other partner without hurting the ride-giver.
- “Fake scorpions” (pseudoscorpions) catch a lift from flies and other insects by holding onto legs or abdomens.
- Remoras cling to sharks and a few barnacles hitch rides on sea turtles or whales.
I can recommend this as a fun learning book.
