Did you know that hippos have their ears on top of their heads? Or that the African elephant has the biggest ears of any animal? These are just two of the fascinating facts included in Incredible Ears Up Close. Early elementary readers will be delighted by the variety of ways the animals around us use their ears and that no all animals hear the world the way we do. A fun guessing game at the end of the book introduces readers to the idea that some animals have ears in some pretty strange places.
