“My son really liked the videos and the online book, and doing the workbook pages. The online book was the first book that I have ever read to him that I got to actually finish the book. He normally takes the book away from me and wants to “read it to me”. lol So we enjoyed reading the book together on the laptop. . . We learned all about how animals have tails and how some animals use their tails for balance, or to defend themselves from danger.” – Rodna Allman

My children and I really enjoyed the fun storytelling and the style of writing in this book—the distinctive ‘voice’ that is so fun and children can easily relate to and enjoy.
