Fur and Feathers

Description

When Sophia dreams that howling winds whisk the fur and feathers right off her animal friends, she shares some of her clothes with them. But her clothing doesn't work well for the animals. Seeing their disappointment, she offers to sew each one the -right- coat. Animals line up to explain what they need and why. Polar Bear needs white fur to stay warm and hide in the snow. Fish needs scales, but with slime. Snake needs scales too, but dry ones. And how will Sophia make a prickly coat for Porcupine? The award-winning team of Halfmann and Klein (Little Skink's Tail) reunite to bring animal coverings (and classification) to life in an imaginative way.

Reviews

Fur and Feathers is a creative picture book with a hands-on educational approach to the scientific classification of animals. - Midwest Book Review
This book would be a great accompanying piece to many of our preschool programs which deal with general external covering classifications (feathers for birds, scales for Herps., fur for mammals). - Environmental Education Association of Illinois
Author Janet Halfmann and illustrator Laurie Allen Klein combine to bring the ideas of animal coverings and classification to life in an imaginative way. - Homeshchool Book Review
