Steve Jenkins again captures his audience with the use of layering and texture in his collage illustrations.  The pictures in his book, Slap, Squeak, & Scatter: How Animals Communicate, come to life as Jenkins explains the different ways animals communicate.  Animal communication is a scientific area of study, and with this book, readers can explore how animals notify each other of danger, signal that they want to play, or attract a mate for reproduction.  Jenkins’s text is presented in a simple, understandable fashion so readers of all ages can enjoy it.
