Description


"1 kangaroo jump is the same distance as 2 ringtailed lemur leaps . . . "

Have you ever wondered just how far animals can jump? These fun comparisons explain it all--from tiny grasshopper hurdles and coyote vaults to the best pouncer of all

Understanding numbers and distance is easy with this fun book of animal facts Starting with a single kangaroo, Alison Limentani's cool illustrations capture a variety of creatures leaping--and reveal just how many jumps it would take each one to cover the same ground. Four bunny hops = 5 frog bounces = 6 goat skips. But none of the animals can match the world-record-holding snow leopard At the end, kids will discover how many jumps it would take each one to go all around the globe.
