A very kid-friendly and enjoyable book with good facts about the animals and how they use their tails. Nice photographers as well.
Little Kid Reaction: I let a friend of mine share this book with her class of second graders and they really loved it,

Big Kid Reaction: I really enjoyed this book and learned a lot about how animals use their tails. There was a lot of information that I had never read before.

Pros: Lots of great photography, fun facts, and a chance for kids to experiment with the functions of tails make this perfect for fun reading, in the classroom or for home schooling.

Shelves: 2011, animals
Excellent pictures throughout the book and interesting facts. I wasn’t fond of the layout between the pictures and text. It made it less interesting to read. I found some of the descriptions to long and skimmed over the writings more then once to gather the information in my head.

I did not know a lot about animal tails to be honest I never thought about them before. It was fun learning about them I just wish it had been presented better.
