If you could have any animal's tongue, whose would you choose?

What if you woke up one morning and your tongue wasn't yours? What If You Had an Animal Tongue!? — the next imaginative book in the What If You Had series — explores what would happen if you looked in the mirror and saw an animal's tongue instead of your own! From a Komodo dragon's split, yellow tongue (which can detect food from five miles away) to a woodpecker's long, thorny tongue (used to dig into trees for food), discover what it would be like if you had these special tongues — and find out why your tongue is just the right one for you!

Raves & reviews:

Praise for What If You Had Animal Teeth!?:

"Will surely satisfy animal enthusiasts and trivia lovers, and dentists and parents will appreciate the mention of ways to keep human chompers healthy." — Booklist

"It's a hilarious and instructive combination that makes it clear just how variable and individually suited this aspect of anatomy is, and the art takes the concept and runs — well, chomps — with it." — Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Delightful illustrations and factual presentations of animals make this a valuable purchase for early elementary classrooms and libraries." — Library Media Connection

"The lively text, photographs, and quirky illustrations charmingly tell a great tooth story." — International Reading Association
