Summertime sleepers, animals that estivate, Melissa Stewart ; illustrated by Sarah S. Brannen - reinforced for library use

Summary
"All science classrooms discuss animals that hibernate during winter months, but few know about animals that estivate--a prolonged sleep during hot or dry periods. Dual layers of text awaken readers to the reasons estivating animals become dormant--whether it's because warm weather threatens food supply or to avoid increased body temperatures."--, Provided by publisher
