Product Details


“Perfect for a group storytime, this is a useful addition to the wonders-of-animals shelf.” – Kirkus Reviews

“An expressive monkey acts as a guide to the animal kingdom’s most interesting tongues…Back matter offers greater detail and also explains the workings of the human tongue. The appealing cover and bright, cheery illustrations will capture the attention of even casual browsers. A fine addition to early nonfiction collections.” –School Library Journal

“This fascinating and whimsical nonfiction picture book uses humorous comparisons and playful artwork to teach children the unusual ways that a variety of animals…use their tongues…Through debut illustrator Jia Liu’s bright, playful collage artwork, readers can imagine what it would be like to have a tongue like a sword, or straw, or party blower, among many other silly and illuminating comparisons. The back matter expands on each animal tongue’s unique abilities and includes information about other fun tongues, too.” – School Library Connection
