Year Reviewed:: 2015
Review: This book is part of the "Adapted to Survive" series, where each title discusses animals grouped on a common skill - Climb, Fly, Hide, Hunt, and Run. In this selection, meerkats, earthworms, wombats, and polar bears are just a few of the animals linked by their ability to dig. Various reasons for burrowing are discussed: hiding, cooling off, and finding food. The end of the book includes an Animal Challenge and an invitation to invent a new burrowing animal.
