Find out why strong talons suit a raptor, or webbing is perfect for water dwellers as author Mary Holland continues her photographic Animal Anatomy and Adaptations children’s series by exploring the ways insects, amphibians, reptiles and mammals make their way in the world.

The third book in my animal adaptation children’s series (ANIMAL EYES and ANIMAL MOUTHS are the first two) has just been released. ANIMAL LEGS explores how different animal feet and legs are adapted to perform different tasks. Moles, praying mantises, ruffed grouse and many other animals are featured. Each animal’s text and accompanying photograph is spread over two pages. Activities are included in a special “For Creative Minds” section at the end of the book. ANIMAL LEGS is geared to 4 to 8 year-olds.
