LIFETIME: The Amazing Numbers in Animal Lives
Curious about the lives of animals? Interested in averages (or want more examples of how to calculate an average)? This picture book is a clever look at animals using numbers.
Here is page one for alligators (the other page has many, many more eggs). Look for this informational picture in the Creek library.
The description from the Chronicle website:
In one lifetime, a caribou will shed 10 sets of antlers, a woodpecker will drill 30 roosting holes, a giraffe will wear 200 spots, a seahorse will birth 1,000 babies. Count each one and many more while learning about the wondrous things that can happen in just one lifetime. This extraordinary book collects animal information not available anywhere else—and shows all 30 roosting holes, all 200 spots, and, yes!, all 1,000 baby seahorses in eye-catching illustrations. A book about picturing numbers and considering the endlessly fascinating lives all around us, Lifetime is sure to delight young nature lovers.
