“Ears are for hearing, eyes are for seeing, and noses collect smells.” Why? How? What for? Zoologist and author Helen Rundgren presents many animals within each sense category, and young readers must decide for themselves who has the best nose, ears or eyes. Is it the animal that sees best in the dark? The one that can see the longest distance? Is the best nose one that is multipurpose? Or one that smells underwater? Maybe it’s the one that can sense moods in other animals? How about the best ears? Are they those that hear shapes? Or those that can shoo away bugs?
“Ears are for hearing, eyes are for seeing, and noses collect smells.”
By the end, our human senses feel pretty mediocre in comparison, and this reviewer believes that’s just how Rundgren wants us to see them. The animal world is amazing, and these nose, ear and eye facts will have young readers believing just that.
