Synopsis

Do Animals Need Umbrellas? by Steve Parker

These are other questions and answers about life in the wild. Do animals bump into each other in the dark, live under the ground, need air and water, or fear heights? Children are fascinated by wild animals, and this book will answer the questions they most commonly ask about them - and some they might not have thought of! Steve Parker's simple and informative text explains how creatures adapt their bodies and habits to suit their surroundings, while each animal described is brought to life by Graham Rosewarne's detailed illustrations. It is the perfect introduction for 5- to 8-year-olds to the amazing diversity of the animal kingdom. Do animals carry umbrellas or wear winter clothes? Of course they don't! In nature, animals have to survive using only their own bodies. Creatures in cold climates have thick fur, feathers or fat to keep them warm. Those that live in dry places need to drink very little water. Animals in wet places have waterproof fur, feathers, scales or skin to keep them dry. Such adaptations help creatures to survive. Do animals play in the waves? Do they ever get stuck in the mud?These and many more questions about how animals live in different habitats are answered in this entertaining book.
