Summertime Sleepers – Animals that Estivate

Most children know about hibernating animals, but have they ever heard of estivating animals?  Learn more with this science book, great for summer.




“All science classrooms discuss animals that hibernate during winter months, but few know about animals that estivate–a prolonged sleep during hot or dry periods. Dual layers of text awaken readers to the reasons estivating animals become dormant–whether it’s because warm weather threatens food supply or to avoid increased body temperatures.”– publisher
