Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "As Hodgkins points out in this simplified introduction to animal communication, there are many methods creatures use to express information, emotions, needs, and warnings to others. Each turn of the page features a different animal in a double-page illustration, accompanied by a few lines of relevant text. A rabbit thumps its back legs against the ground, warning others to Look out! Male fireflies flash their lights in the evening, saying Let's meet to females in the grass. A frightened dog tucks its tail between its legs, while a worried one holds its tail low and wags it a little. When threatened, rattlesnakes shake their tails, creating a distinctive warning sound. While the text could sometimes be more precise, it offers many good examples of animal communications. Morley contributes a series of richly colored, subtly textured pictures, created with digital as well as traditional media, including watercolors. The illustrations feature appealing portrayals of wild and domesticated animals within their environments. An attractive addition to the long-running Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series.--Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2020 Booklist"
