An interactive introduction to working with animals! Zoology for Kids invites the next generation of zoologists to discover the animal kingdom through clear, entertaining information and anecdotes, lush color photos, hands-on activities, and peer-reviewed research. Young minds are introduced to zoology as a science by discussing animals’ forms, functions, and behaviors as well as the history behind zoos and aquariums. Related activities include baking edible animal cells, playing a dolphin-echolocation game, and practicing designing an exhibit. Young readers can peek into the world of zookeepers and aquarists, veterinarians, wildlife researchers, and conservationists as they “train” their friends, mold a tiger’s jawbone, and perform field research in their own backyard. This engaging resource provides readers with new knowledge, a healthy respect for the animal kingdom, and the idea that they can pursue animal-related careers and make a difference to preserve and protect the natural world.
We thought that this book was absolutely WONDERFUL! Not only does it give up close views of animals but really allows children to understand the animals and the science of zoology! We especially liked the activites that are linked throughout the book giving children engagement to what they have just read and learned. It really gets the mind processing and thinking!
THe authors Josh and Bethanie Hesterman have outdone themselves in creating this volume for today’s children!
