Subject Heading: Learning in animals-Juvenile literature. Near the Virgin Islands, French grunts learn in schools. Every dawn and dusk, these coral reef fish travel the same route between their daytime resting places and their feeding grounds. Nothing marks the path. Grades 3-6, Ages 8-11. They learn the route only if they school with fish that already know the way. Science writer and naturalist Peter Christie has applied his expertise to a first children's book. This small, highly readable book packs a wealth of intriguing examples of social learning-how animals may learn useful skills from one another to supplement their instinctive abilities.

Animals learning complex behaviour from each other is a new idea and, as Christie points out, much more widespread than most of us recognize. The examples in Well-Schooled Fish and Feathered Bandits are collected in an introduction and conclusion and six chapters, which look at activities in different categories such as mating, eating, making tools, and so on. Every page has a well-captioned illustration, consisting of a striking photograph of one of the animals being discussed or a simple cartoon showing behaviour

In England, chickadee-like blue tits learn to peck off the foil caps of milk bottles for a tasty meal. In Japan, macaque monkeys teach their young to wash sand-covered sweet potatoes in the sea. Meanwhile, crows in the South Pacific have invented an ingenious scoop cut from leaves. In each case, such amazing behavior is not shared by the same species in other places proof that these clever creatures pass their skills to younger generations in their own communities.

Through dramatic color photos of the featured animal species, and more surprising examples of creative critters, author Peter Christie presents a delightfully fun and tantalizing look at how animals learn.
