Eye to Eye: How Animals See the World (2014)

Written by Steve Jenkins

The Caldecott Honor–winning author-illustrator Steve Jenkins presents a series of animals with unusual eyes in this eye-catching picture book!

In his latest eye-popping work of picture book nonfiction, the Caldecott Honor–winning author-illustrator Steve Jenkins explains how for most animals, eyes are the most important source of information about the world in a biological sense. The simplest eyes—clusters of light-sensitive cells—appeared more than one billion years ago, and provided a big survival advantage to the first creatures that had them. 

Since then, animals have evolved an amazing variety of eyes, along with often surprising ways to use them. This book is recommended for children ages 6 and up. (Copyright © Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Books for Young Readers. All rights reserved.)
