Booklist - 09/15/2022 Noting that scientists disagree on what constitutes a tool, award-winning duo Jenkins and Page explain that by tool, they mean “an object that an animal manipulates and uses to affect its environment.” Remarkable and surprising ways in which creatures do this are shown in Jenkins’ trademark vivid, collage artwork accompanied by the authors’ concise, accessible, and engrossing language. After an introduction on animal tools, spreads cover a type of animal, some problems it faces, and tools it uses to overcome them. The first such spread, for example, on birds, introduces readers to the palm cockatoo, the only animal that scientists know to create a rhythmic beat with a tool. An illustration of the bird and a stick it might use to create its music sits alongside the explanation, as does a silhouette of the bird and of a human hand, for scale. Throughout the work, readers will be rapt as they find a wealth of animals and their beautiful colors and habits illustrated. Another winner for classroom and public library use. - Copyright 2022 Booklist.
