Part of the Planeta animal - New Edition series
From tree-chomping beavers to waddling penguins, and from galloping wild horses to prowling tigers, the world of animals is wonderfully diverse. This popular series, now translated into North American Spanish, travels the planet to study these and other fascinating mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, and invertebrates. Beautiful photos are paired with STEM-appropriate text to examine the featured creature’s appearance, habitat, behaviors, and life cycle. Each new title also presents a folk story that people have used to help explain the animal’s appearance or behavior.
