From beagles and bobcats to tigers and toucans—animal-loving youngsters can find their favorites and sharpen their memory skills by matching 36 images by artist Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007). Kids of all ages can enjoy playing the game and learning from the accompanying booklet about familiar and exotic creatures.
Sample booklet text: Black bears usually live in forests and can climb trees. They’re not always black, though; they can be brown, blue-gray, cinnamon, blond, or even white. Bears stuff themselves with plenty of fruit, nuts, roots, insects, and vegetation during the summer and fall, then spend the winter hibernating in their dens.
Caterpillars change into butterflies through a process known as metamorphosis. Depending on their species, some butterflies may grow to nearly 12 inches in diameter. Butterflies feed on nectar, sap, and juice from fruit. They can be found on every continent except Antarctica.
