Jenkins, Steve and Page, Robin Flying Frogs and Walking Fish Houghton Mifflin, 2016. $17.99. PICTURE BOOK/NON-FICTION
This well known duo has taken on animal movement from creatures you wouldn’t think would walk, fly, hop, or roll. Examples are sloth’s that swim, rat terrier’s that can climb trees, and a baby bird with extra claws on its wings for climbing. Illustrations are bright and clear with easy to read, simple text.
Everything created by this pair is just lovely and is checked out by teachers at my school. However, the students always go for nature books with picture (exception this is Actual Size books by this duo). Its just more exciting to see the real animal in action. I add these books for the teachers.
