Animales del zoológico / Zoo Animals
Ostriches are the largest birds on Earth, and many of these supersized animals call zoos home. These big birds don't bury their heads in the sand like many believe, but they do all sorts of amazing things. Running more than 40 miles (64.4 km) per hour and using their wings to steer as they go, these big birds will wow beginning readers with their lives inside their zoo habitats. Through simple text and full-color photography readers will also learn how zookeepers take care of ostriches and make sure they live long, happy lives.
