Let's look at hands, by Sheilagh Noble
"This brightly illustrated, engaging series presents both human and
animal bodies, prompting children to compare and contrast them. Each
page spread features children examining the animals' "hands and feet"
and comparing them with their own, encouraging them to think about how
their own bodies work and how animals' bodies are modified and equipped
to help them survive in their natural habitat. Kids learn how a camel
has special toes for walking on sand, how a seal uses its flippers to
swim, and why moles have special paws-to hunt and shovel. The skills and
diversity of all living creatures are celebrated." - Zero to Ten Children's Books
We sang: Five Green and Speckled Frogs
Five green and speckled frogs,
Sat on a speckled log,
Eating some most delicious bugs,
One jumped into the pool,
Where it was nice and cool.
Now there's only four green speckled frogs!
Four, three, two, one, and none!
