From Amazon: "Melanie Walsh, creator of Do Pigs Have Stripes? and Do Monkeys Tweet? shows her skill in reaching the youngest readers. Walsh shows differences between pairs of animals and then shows how they are similar.
Lions are big and have hairy manes. Kittens are small and fluffy. But . . . they both have scratchy claws!
There are birds and bats, sharks and goldfish, penguins and birds—who at first may seem very different, but share similarities, too. Children will love guessing on their own."
The author compares 5 pairs of animals, with clear illustrations, and simple language--perfect for our kids. I've created a set of visuals to go with this book, all free, just for you. You will have to find the book--it's for sale online, or you can check out your local library, which is what I did.
The visuals have clipart from Smarty Symbols for each animal, along with a sample Venn diagram and a blank Venn diagram.
The book is loads of fun, and the kids will all love this.

A while back, I made a comprehensive set of visuals to go with 'Nothing Like a Puffin' along with some supplemental teaching materials, and a compare/contrast game. You can view 'Nothing Like a Puffin' companion pack here on TPT.
