Think About How Everyone Says Hello
Part of the Think About series:
Does a Seal Smile? explores the ways and meanings of body and facial expressions in wild animals, chimps, and people. A funny, kid-like question ("Does a coyote smile?") is shown with a realistic scenario (coyote howling), and thoughts/facts about how animals express themselves (e.g., a coyote's howl might mean "come here!"). Chimps are featured next, and a link is made to shared forms of human expression. Next, waves, smiles, frowns, hugs, kisses, handshakes, and common greeting expressions show how humans express what they want, think, and feel, and how we connect with one another. A final spread offers activities that further extend a child's grasp of the featured topic.
