Summary Note How are humans different from other animals? This is a question scientists have long tried to answer. As it turns out, some of the very things researchers once though distinguished humans--our creativity, our problem-solving ability, our capacity for planning or abstract thought--actually make us very similar to other animals! This nonfiction book introduces several different behaviours that humans and other animals share, including farming, teaching, laughing, building, mourning, communicating, grooming, playing, traveling, using tools, and working together. Narrated by a funny and friendly ant, this book is packed with humour and playful phrasing to bring lightness to the exploration of animal behaviour. Brought to life by bright and wacky cartoon-style illustrations, Acting Wild will leave kids with the understanding that acting like an animal is simply in their nature.
Target audience note 7-10 years.
