An introduction to the world of nocturnal creatures and plants includes simple experiments and activities
Reviews: (2)
good overall information with a few experiments- thought that there would be more
Here's a nifty book about the animals and plants that hunt and forage, mate and mingle, and attract pollinators at night. The author takes us to a realm of amazing smells and eerie sounds that one only finds after dark, and shows us who's "who-ing." Rather than limit the reader to brief discussions of nocturnal mammals and birds, this author begins with flowers then heads through some insects and the vertebrates. She lets us in on the secret lives of these species, with information on feeding habits, mating, rearing the young, and more. Animals covered in depth include: Owls, frogs, moths, fireflies, bats, opossums, crickets and grasshoppers, raccoons, and skunks. The relatives of these animals are also mentioned. With maps and clearly written charts, she makes it easy for the novice nocturnal hunter to find the species in different habitats. The author also includes a few demonstrations (like sugaring for moths) and suggestions for furthur observations. The text is accompanied by well labled line drawings of important anatomical features--skulls, antennae, ears--and the chapters include equipment lists, suggested "hunting" places, and helpful hints. Especially helpful were the charts on owl pellets and the tadpole development table. Great for family outings, homeschools (where learing never stops for night) and nature centers.
