Synopsis

Animal Talk by Etta Kaner

A sea lion pup recognizes its mother's call, even with thousands of other noisy sea lions about. A vervet monkey shouts ha-ha-ha to warn of an eagle passing overhead. A peacock fans its colourful tail feathers in a silent but impressive display to entice a peahen. Whether it's to attract a mate, warn of predators or mark their territory, animals share information in some extraordinary ways.

Reviews

Packed with interesting facts, this spacious, large-sized picture book combines a lively, informal text with big, bright, realistic illustrations, photographs as well as original artwork, that show animals in their environment, ... an excellent choice for sharing and reading aloud.--Booklist

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
