    1. This book asks the child a question followed by a discussion of how a particular animal likes to do the same thing. It is playful in that it makes animal behavior seem childlike and fun. A couple of examples are: honeybees dance and gazelles play tag. There are eight such children activity – animal behavior comparisons explored in this book. This is a great read for any young animal lover, aged 2-5. Thank you to netgalley for an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review!

    2. Kids love to pretend they are animals, and roar, walk on four legs, or move they arms like flying. For this reason I find the idea of this book incredibly interesting. Animals sometimes "act like kids", since they also dance, play tag or leapfrog, have piggyback rides. For each of these examples there is an explanation for this behavior. Grey Tree Frogs, for example, blow bubbles to build a nest on trees above water where they lay their eggs, allowing the tadpole to fall into the water when they [...]

    3. This is a very colorful picture book that talks about how our human behaviors are very similar to certain animal behaviors. I actually learned a few facts myself.

The language is accessible to virtually all age groups, while conveying information that was new to my ears as an ecological science professional. I was captivated from the first page, and I have no doubt that [...]

    9. I received this book via Netgalley for an honest review.This is a truly lovely book. It's beautifully illustrated and well written. For every animal included there are some facts that will interest any young child, especially one like mine who loves animals and trivia.

It's good to read aloud but challenging enough [...]

    11. Animals Do Too! How They Behave Just Like You is a wonderful picture book that can be read on so many different levels and in many different ways. Preschoolers would enjoy the basic predictable story pattern that compares their action to that of an animal (e.g. “Do you like to dance? Honeybees do too!). The young elementary student will enjoy the scientific description of what the animal does that is like what the child does and why. The slightly older student would enjoy reading the book inde [...]

    12. This book takes different activities children love (dancing, blowing bubbles, etc.) and shows that animals like to do the same activities.

Honeybees do too!" whereas my older children really enjoy hearing the more detailed explanation of how the animal does the activity. No matter the age group, you will have children pretending to be animals in all sorts of ne [...]

    14. Interesting selection of animals to compare. One double page spread shows children and adults at some activity, the next spread show an animal, with a rather lengthy paragraph describing how and why the animals does that. I think these are a tad long for the intended audience, but the reader could summarize. Additional information in the back includes range or habitat.Watercolor illustrations are cute but not realistic enough for me to shelve this in the non-fiction section.

    23. This book is so interesting! It parallels human behavior with animal behavior and gives facts about why animals do these certain behaviors, i.e. babysitting, leap frogging, dancing, playing tag, etc. The prose can either be simple, for ages 2-4, if you only read the large text. But it can be expanded for ages 4-6 if you also read the smaller text with the animal facts.I love when books make non-fiction interesting for kids, and this book is the perfect example. Even I learned several things whil [...]
