ACTING WILD : HOW WE BEHAVE LIKE BIRDS, BUGS, AND BEASTS
by Birmingham, Maria, author.
J 590 BIR
"For a long time, scientists have tried to figure out what separates us from animals. For example, one early hypothesis was our use of tools-until Jane Goodall famously recorded observations of chimpanzees making and using tools. In fact, it looks like the very things that we once thought distinguished humans, our creativity, our ingenuity, our capacity of planning or abstract thought, are the very things that actually make us very animal! Maria Birmingham explores many of the surprising ways that humans behave just like animals. Topics covered: farming, teaching, laughing, mourning, building, using tools, communicating, grooming, playing, working together, travelling. Paired with Dave Whamond's humorous cartoon-style illustrations, this nonfiction book will show kids that it's entirely okay to act like an animal-we can't help it!"-- Provided by publisher.

JOURNEY AROUND THE SUN : THE STORY OF HALLEY
by Gladstone, James, 1969- author.
J 523.642 GLA
"Journey Around the Sun is the story of Halley's Comet, as told by the comet itself, as it returns to Earth approximately every 75 years. At the same time that we learn about the comet, we also learn about the history of human culture and technology, evolving as it has toward a greater understanding of our universe. Amazingly, although people in early civilizations did not know about the return orbit of Halley's Comet, documentation of the comet has survived from ancient China, Babylon, Greece, and the Arab world. (Comets were also painted in North and South America, but it's less clear whether or not they were of Halley.) These sightings were seen as omens good and bad, and they were woven into tapestries, painted on scrolls, immortalized in theatre. Edmond Halley predicted the comet would return in 1758, and he was proven right through successive technologies: telescopes, cameras, and eventually a spacecraft, Giotto, which photographed the comet's ice core at close range. Whether viewed through a cultural, psychological, or scientific lens, what's clear is that the history of Halley's comet is deeply tied to our own. The question that remains is what will Halley's Comet "see" the next time it comes to visit? The book ends with an Author's Note with more information about Halley's Comet and comets in general."-- Provided by publisher.

Kyle Reed's vibrant collage style illustrations bring the animals to life with colour and personality, cleverly connecting the bridge between the animal and human comparison. Examples from the book: -"While you cover yourself with a blanket ... an otter wraps itself in seaweed" -"While you doze off on a long trip ... a frigate bird nods off as it soar." -"While you pull on your pj's ... a parrotfish snuggles up in slime.""-- Provided by publisher.
