Meet a fish that flies, a frog that climbs trees and a bird that flies backward! Whether it's to escape danger, seek shelter or look for food, animals move in many amazing ways. This title in the Animal Behavior series contains facts, activities and easy-to-do experiments to show kids how animals walk, run, glide, fly, slither and jump. With stunning, realistic illustrations, Animals in Motion is an innovative approach to understanding animal life.
