This book is all about animal mouths. It describes how animals use their mouths for chewing, for cracking seeds, and for capturing prey, among other uses. One part that I really liked was a gross part! It told how robber flies use their spit to turn their prey into liquid and how they suck it up! The pictures in this book are actual photographs of the animals. There are also pictures of the animals’ skulls. This helps the reader to get a better look at the teeth of an animal.
One of the things I liked about this book was learning a bunch of new life science words. I learned that a proboscis is a kind of straw for a butterfly, a herbivore is an animal that eats plants, and that incisors are teeth that never stop growing! If I could change something about this book, I would have had more pictures of animals using their teeth, and perhaps maps showing where these animals lived. A quotation that I really liked from this book is: “Animals that eat other animals are called carnivores.” I would give this book five stars, and I think that boys and girls who like learning about animals would really enjoy this book.
