Each book in this series introduces the group behaviour of animals. The animal group is explored - how is it made up and what happens in the group? Behaviours include feeding, reproduction, fights, displays, play and communication. Examining classification, the text looks at where each group belongs and introduces correct terms for each animal. The series also looks at habitat - how the animal has adapted, and how it copes with changes including environmental threats.
