It's nighttime in the rain forest and a small animal is searching for food. Like a furry kite, the little creature glides from the top of one tree to the lower branches of another. The animal is a flying lemur, and while these animals can't really fly, they have an amazing ability to glide from one part of the forest to another. Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of its second-grade audience, this colorful, fact-filled volume introduces young readers to the everyday life of a flying lemur. How has the animal's body adapted to its treetop life? What does a flying lemur eat? How does it move from tree to tree? And how do flying lemurs raise their young and keep them safe when they live so high above the ground? Throughout the book, readers are encouraged to make scientific observations based on the book's images and answer questions about the lives and physical characteristics of these fascinating animals. This innovative approach to teaching about wild animals gives young scientists the chance not only to read and learn the facts, but also to develop their own powers of observation and critical thinking.
