Description
In nature, different kinds of animals help each other. The friendships can be surprising and fun. One animal can be very big and the other one very small. Friendships in Nature teaches children about the surprising and Fascinating world of symbiosis. Presented as special friendships, children will learn how the most unlikely animal, plant, or insect pair can help each other in unusual ways. Why does the crocodile let the wagtail, a type of bird, hop around inside its mouth without chomping down on the little bird? Because the wagtail cleans the croc's teeth The wagtail gets to eat what's left of the croc's latest meal, and the croc gets a free teeth cleaning. Learn all about the special relationships between clownfish and sea anemones; the Amazonian poison-dart frog and it's home, a type of plant; ever-popular hummingbirds and blooming flowers; and much more about zebras, giraffes, ants, monkeys, squirrels, elephants, birds, and plants. Children will love learning about unusual friendships, and parents and teachers will love the four, full glossary pages at the end of the book for further discussion.
