Feet have a lot of jobs to do: helping animals walk, climb, swim, dig, jump, or just hold on tight! How many animal feet can you identify? The close-up photographs of furry paws, scaled feet, and spiny claws present a guessing game for readers, followed by facts about how each animal uses its unique feet. This book is an excellent introduction to animal adaptations, but also makes a fun read aloud for a storytime on animals or movement.
