The treetop forager is a tree kangaroo--an animal that looks a lot like the ground-dwelling kangaroos of Australia, but which spends its life climbing and leaping through the treetops! Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of its second-grade audience, this colorful, fact-filled volume introduces young readers to the everyday life of a tree kangaroo. How is the animal's body adapted to its treetop life? What does the tree kangaroo eat? How does it move from tree to tree? And how do female tree kangaroos keep their tiny joeys safe as they leap through the rain forest, sometimes jumping the length of a school bus? Throughout the book, readers are encouraged to make scientific observations based on the book's images and answer questions about tree kangaroo's lives and physical characteristics. This innovative approach to teaching about wild animals gives young scientists the chance not only to read and learn the facts, but also to develop their own powers of observation and critical thinking.
