Book Details

Young readers meet animals showing off their unique tails in this narrative nonfiction picture book that celebrates the diversity of the animal world.
Tails that spin. Tails that mimic spiders to lure in prey. Tails that simply drop off as defense. Zoologist and children's author Julie Murphy explores dolphins, spider-tailed horned vipers, desert lizards, and many more animals with terrific tails. The well-researched book is the third in the I've Got… series covering animal adaptions from Julie Murphy and illustrator Hannah Tolson (I've Got Feet!, Fall 2017 and I've Got Eyes!, Fall 2018).
A map locates the common range of each animal. Illustrated endpapers show the animals with tails hiding at the front, and the back endpapers reveal the animals. Perfect for young animal lovers to read on their own, this book can also be used to support classroom lessons in grades K-2 for life science, geography, and more.
