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.

Research Notes
“This is a book I’ve been wanting to write for years. As I did research for other books about animals, I was intrigued that a cricket’s ears are on its knees and that many animals use their ears to stay cool. Incredible Ears Up Close finally gave me a chance to share all the fun ear facts I’ve been collecting.”
“These titles introduce specific body parts and discuss their unique functions. These well-thought-out titles are suitable for beginning readers looking for some fascinating facts, and the excellent photography will draw them into the books. There is also a guessing game at the back of each volume. Solid additions to most collections.”
