REVIEW: Animal Doctors: Incredible Ways Animals Heal Themselves by Angie Trius & Mark Doran, Ill
Hooray for UK publisher Laurence King who have translated this fantastic new non-fiction book from the original Spanish. Animal doctors examines some of nature's most interesting animal healers, from the African elephant to the dusky-footed woodrat. Each species is showcased on an intricately designed double-page spread, full of facts, questions and answers. Did you know Blue Jays eat ants for their formic acid which acts as an antiseptic shampoo for the bird's feathers? What about the fact that domestic dog saliva is antiseptic and can kill bacteria in their wounds? Fun and beautifully produced. Great for young science lovers.
