Teach Through Books: What Do You Do With a Tail Like This?


WhatDoYouDoAge level: Preschool, Early Elementary

Description: This stunning book by Steve Jenkins and Robin Page uses cut-paper art to illustrate different parts of animals and their uses. Students can explore how a platypus uses his nose or how a bat uses its ears among many other things. The books is also well-organized in that a set of two pages will show several noses along with the question “What do you do with a nose like this?” Students are able to make guesses and discuss possibilities before turning to the next page, which shows the animals in their entirety and provides a brief explanation of how each animal uses its nose. It continues like this for several different body parts. I also love Steve Jenkin’s work, which you can learn more about here. And you definitely don’t want to miss his video about how he creates his work.
