Summary
"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!"--
