WHAT ANIMAL IS THIS?
Similar but Different in the Animal Kingdom is a delightful and informative book that introduces students not only to the basics of zoology, but to the nuanced distinctions of classification. Ranging from physiological differences to dietary and habitudinal differences, the book lays out a cogent system that teaches children how to compare and contrast seemingly similar animals in such a way as to understand their unique place in the natural world, their life cycle, survival, and larger role in their respective ecosystem. While Similar but Different in the Animal Kingdom is detailed and deeply scientific, author Martina Nicolls’ prose makes each lesson easily accessible to students, presenting a straightforward glossary of terms coupled with a blended colloquial/academic diction that helps to break down these complicated subjects. Perfect for the classroom or at home, Similar but Different in the Animal Kingdom is sure to spark children’s interest in zoology and teach them the essential skill of classification in a fun and rigorous way. I highly recommend this book.
