"This fascinating book explains that some animals must learn the basics of staying alive from their mothers, while others know how to survive without being taught. Students will discover how some bird and mammal mothers teach their babies how to find food and keep safe from predators. Readers will also learn about other animal skills such as finding their way over great distances. People need help from navigation instruments, radar, or maps. Animals use cues such as the sun, stars, or Earth's magnetic field when they are swimming or flying. This book asks students to look at the skills of animals and compare them to their knowledge and ways of learning."-- Provided by publisher.
