About This Book
In All About Manatees, budding young naturalists will meet the manatee, a peaceful sea mammal that is distantly related to the elephant! Manatees are over ten feet long, and sometimes weigh between 1,000 and 8,000 pounds. What child won't love to discover what manatees eat, how they communicate with each other, and how this endangered species survives in its watery world?
Arnosky shows how manatees grow and live, answering kids' biggest questions about these creatures of the water. Packed with intriguing information and brought to life by Arnosky's vibrant watercolors, this book will fascinate young readers.
Arnosky, a fine science artist and author, compiles meticulous first-hand observations of the life cycle, habitat and behaviors of each of his subjects in his All About series. He creates appealing picture books with thorough and informative text, accompanied by colorful and accurate drawings.
