Synopses & Reviews
Rotner (Families) invites readers to identify animals—including a cat owl alligator lobster and dragonfly—by looking at close up photographs of their eyes. After each animal’s identity is revealed Rotner describes its visual acuity (“Bearded dragons see in full color and can see some colors that are invisible to us. Their eyes are on either side of their heads so they see on both sides at once”) before touching on the vision of other mammals birds fish and insects. The language is direct and the layout bare bones but the photographs are eye catching no pun intended and readers will walk away with interesting tidbits about how animals including humans see the world.
