Lifetime The Amazing Numbers in Animal Lives by Lola M. Schaefer


Lifetime The Amazing Numbers in Animal Lives by Lola M. Schaefer

In one lifetime, a caribou will shed 10 sets of antlers, a woodpecker will drill 30 roosting holes, a giraffe will wear 200 spots, a seahorse will birth 1,000 babies. Count each one and many more while learning about the wonderous things that can happen in just one lifetime. This extraordinary book collects animal information not available anywhere else--and shows all 30 roosting holes, all 200 spots, and, yes!, all 1,000 baby seahorses in eye-catching illustrations. A book about picturing numbers and considering the endlessly fascinating lives all around us, Lifetime is sure to delight young nature lovers.


A fascinating addition to the curious reader's library. --The Daily Parent
