Curious Creatures Working With Tools by Zoë Armstrong

In Earth’s jungles and deserts and deep beneath the sea curious creatures are hard at work.  Some resourceful animals use tools to get the job done, just like you do. There are bottlenose dolphins holding sponges to protect their snouts, chimps wielding stone hammers and tailorbirds stitching leaves with spider silk.

From apes to otters to clever crows, this beautifully illustrated non-fiction picture book tells stories of amazing tool-using animals that use objects in crafty ways. Learn how and why these animals toil with tools, and discover that you have more in common with them than you ever imagined…
