We know what we see. Do we know what they see?
- Did you know that most animals do not recognize red colour?
- Did you know that a bird that may only seem uninterestingly black to you can be painted in the most beautiful colours for members of its own species?
Have you ever wondered how animals perceive the world around us? Whether they see the same colors we see? Whether the vision of a fish is blurry underwater like ours? Or whether dogs like to watch TV, or cats really can see in the dark? If you have ever wished you could ask the animals themselves, don’t worry, because the book you are holding in your hands holds the answers to these questions and many more.
Children’s curiosities know no bounds, and this book is the perfect way to satisfy their wonder. It begins with an introduction filled with charts, diagrams, and robust vocabulary, providing an overview of eyesight and how the eye functions. The body of the text details the ophthalmic profiles of a variety of creatures from birds to fish, and reptiles to house pets, and more! Each animal’s information is broken into well organized, manageable sections that effectively incorporate text features to deliver dense content in an engaging and entertaining manner. The colorful illustrations will appeal to children while also providing support as they learn new vocabulary and concepts. - Youth Services Book Review
