The View from the Oak: The Private Worlds of Other Creatures

Herbert Kohl, Judith Kohl

What do flowers in a meadow look like to a bee? How does the world appear to a snake who “sees” by detecting minute temperature changes? What is it like to live in the water strider’s two-dimensional universe? Including hands-on games and activities, The View from the Oak helps readers enter the fascinating, often invisible world of nature. It is a “superb book for families to share” (Winston-Salem Journal).
