Introduce young readers to the myriad ways in which the assorted members of the animal kingdom communicate. The means of animal communication turn out to be as intriguing and varied as the content that is being communicated, from mating signals and announcements regarding location and food availability to warning alarms and simple tokens of affection and protectiveness. Echolocation, pheromones, bioluminescence, scent marking, tail wagging, nuzzling, the elephant’s trumpet, the honeybee’s waggle dance, and more all get their due in this brief, but surprisingly comprehensive, volume. Perfect for animal lovers and whisperers, while also a useful resource for life science units.
