Description


A playful yet scientifically precise exploration of a dog's five senses that will help middle grade readers better appreciate the canine point of view (for ages 8-12)

Did you know that dogs have millions more olfactory receptors than humans and that their noses are built to reserve some air that they breathe in just for smelling? So why the butt sniffing? Actually, dogs discern a lot of information about another dog from a whiff of that region, including the dog's health and eating habits.

In five chapters that explore each of a dog's senses, and an additional chapter that questions whether dogs might have senses that people don't, this middle-grade nonfiction book explains canine senses from both evolutionary and scientific perspectives. Sidebars offer additional information throughout the text, including hands-on activities that let readers experience a dog's sensory abilities for themselves.

Written with an approachable tone and loaded with fascinating facts, Making Sense of Dog Senses presents readers with both curious and practical insights into their canine pals' behavior.
