Sisters & Brothers: Sibling Relationships in the Animal World
Raksha-Bandhan Special : How Brothers Irritate Sisters - Ashish Chanchlaniand
This book takes a look at the offspring of twenty-one different animals and how they interact with their siblings. Each page contains a beautiful illustration of the animal in a cut or torn paper This book is about different types of animals and how they get along with their siblings. It would be nice to read to children so they understand how their relationship works and the similarities and differences. Steve Jenkins , Robin Page. Here, Steve Jenkins and Robin Page investigate sibling relationships throughout the animal kingdom.
Each spread focuses on a species or two, offering a tabbed notation that describes the gist of this species' sibling arrangements "Competition," "Living together," "Stepsisters and stepbrothers" and a paragraph that describes the relevant sibling behavior; animals featured range from arachnids and reptiles to birds and mammals. The text is a little choppy and the theme is strained at times; however, this is certainly an idea likely to attract the attention of young readers, themselves intimately familiar with the complexity of growing up with siblings, and there's a clear and useful message of diverse practices in the natural world on family matters. Jenkins' renowned collage illustrations offer tactile portraits of teeming termites and wrinkly naked mole rats, fuzzy-edged bear cubs and crisply assembled armadillos. Add this to the couple's ever-expanding oeuvre of inviting early biology, or slyly slip it into a thematic discussion of siblings. A closing spread of "animal facts" offers thumbnail descriptions of the featured critters' habitat and habits. Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide.
Brothers and sisters, huh? Today do something fun with your sibling or siblings or tell them you love them—or both! You know that most animals are born in a litter or with one or two other siblings, but do you really consider that they are brothers and sisters just like human siblings? You might wonder if they have the same kind of relationship with each other that people do. How do they get along? How do they communicate?
