Howl Like a Wolf

Howl Like a Wolf is aimed at young readers and is packed with information and play-alongs for more than 15 different animals.  Each chapter introduces an animal, explains some of their behaviors and characteristics and then invites the reader along on activities to learn about why the animals do what they do.

I loved the art, it's colorful and vibrant.  The text is intelligent and not condescending.  The chapters include the proper Latin names for the animals they're describing.  Increasing awareness and empathy for the wild animals around us, many of whom are critically threatened is so vital to our future and the future of life on our planet.  The interactive activities included in the book are a fun way to get youngsters moving and understanding a little more about the animals who share our planet.

Very well written, beautifully illustrated.  Super bonus points for including tardigrades as one of the animals in the book.  I'm in love! 

Four stars!
