Description
The creative team behind the Caldecott Honor Book What Do You Do with a Tail Like This?, husband and wife Steve Jenkins and Robin Page each grew up with siblings, and here look at how 21 different wild animals interact with their own brothers and sisters. Readers 5 to 9 will learn that anteaters are always only children, while nine-banded armadillos are always born as identical quadruplets. Here too are peregrine falcons, who play-hunt with each other in the sky; wild turkeys, whose sisters will leave the family but whose brothers will remain in the group for life; and spotted hyena cubs, who may fight to the death, all depicted in Jenkins's realistic and superbly crafted paper collages.

"Depicted in crisp, gorgeous, cut-and-torn–paper collages set against lots of white space, the subjects range from female African elephants that stay with the herd and help take care of their younger siblings, to two young grizzlies that grow up together, then fight one another until one must leave. Also pictured are millions of termite brothers and sisters, living together in a mound as tall as a four-story building. Readers will love sharing this, even if they can't sympathize with black widow spiders that eat their siblings. The sibling focus is a way to include a wealth of fascinating science, which is expanded in the detailed back matter that presents more facts about each animal. Children older as well as younger than the target audience will want to thumb through this fascinating picture book."—Booklist (starred review)
