Evans, Cathy. Cat Eyes and Dog Whistles: The Seven Senses of Humans and Other Animals. Becky Thorns, Illus. Non-fiction. Cicada, 04/2022. 60pp. $22.99. 978-1-80066-013-7. HIGH ADDITIONAL. GRADES 2-5.
Human and animal senses are introduced, explained, and explored in this single volume. Quick-paced narration guides readers through each aspect of the senses with comically drawn illustrations (not photographs) filled with short paragraph text bubbles. This one titles works just as well as other series sets with a title for each sense, partly due to humorous text and fun illustrations which move through plenty of information quickly. Evans also goes beyond the standard five senses to explore some of the other ways humans and animals detect (sense) the world around them, including a few that scientists are researching. An enjoyable way to learn about how we experience the world.
