Description
The eyes have it in this fascinating look at how animals see, from Caldecott Honoree Steve Jenkins. He explains to readers 6 to 10 how eyes have evolved from light-sensitive spots to pinholes, compound eyes, and "camera" eyes with focusing lenses, along the way offering eye-to-eye portraits of two dozen animals in his beautiful paper collage illustrations.

"Jenkins's outstanding torn- and cut-paper illustrations offer a fascinating look at these important organs, which range in size from the tiniest holes (starfish) to basketballs (colossal squid).... Large, colorful pictures of more than 20 animal eyes are accompanied by a small illustration of the entire creature and a brief paragraph of intriguing information (for example, as a halibut ages, one eye moves until both end up on the same side of its head, the panther chameleon can operate both eyes separately, and the hippopotamus has a clear membrane that enables it to see while underwater). Animal facts, a bibliography, and a glossary round out this slim volume that will captivate readers of all ages."School Library Journal (starred review)
