Animal Groups

Etta Kaner
Pat Stephens

Honeybees do a special dance to tell their hive mates where to find food. A group of ground squirrels will rush a threatening snake and throw sand in its face. Babysitter flamingos watch over hundreds of chicks while the mothers are away hunting. Whether it's to find food, protect themselves or raise their young, animals live and work together in amazing ways. Containing lots of interesting facts, activities and easy-to-do experiments, this title in the Animal Behavior series takes a resourceful approach to exploring animal life.

“[T]his book provides tidbits of organized information that will widen young browsers' understanding of the subject.”
— School Library Journal, May 2004
“Animal Groups is an exceptionally well written and illustrated text that explores the advantages, from providing defense against predators to finding mates and rearing offspring, that group living conveys on social species. Particularly interesting are the “text boxes” that ask children to consider themselves members of particular groups and to think about what types of behaviors they would exhibit.”
