Can an Aardvark Bark?

You'll learn answers to questions you didn't know you had in this book of interesting animal facts and less well-known animal sounds. It's written with a large print, short Q&A format that's perfect for little ones, plus, in smaller print, longer paragraphs of explanation for older children (and parents!). Oh, and to answer the question: Nope. Aardvarks grunt; they don't bark.

Available at amazon.com, $13.60.
