Lifetime: The Amazing Numbers in Animal Lives - Lola M. Schaefer, Christopher Silas Neal

In one Lifetime (Chronicle, $17.99), how many fleeces will an alpaca grow? How many beads will a rattlesnake add to its rattle? How many eggs will an alligator lay? Lola M. Schaefer was curious about these and other numerical aspects of animal lives but couldn’t find the answers in books or on the Internet, so she talked to animal experts and used some math to figure them out. The results, presented in a gentle format and accompanied by Christopher Silas Neal’s gorgeous illustrations, make a unique read-aloud for younger readers, while the in-depth back matter will fascinate older animal- and math-lovers. (The answers, by the way, are 20, 40, and 550.) Ages 4-9. EAE
