How Far Can a Kangaroo Jump?

by Alison Limentani
“1 kangaroo jump is the same distance as 2 ringtailed lemur leaps . . . “

Have you ever wondered just how far animals can jump? These fun comparisons explain it all—from tiny grasshopper hurdles and coyote vaults to the best pouncer of all!
Understanding numbers and distance is easy with this fun book of animal facts! Starting with a single kangaroo, Alison Limentani’s cool illustrations capture a variety of creatures leaping—and reveal just how many jumps it would take each one to cover the same ground. Four bunny hops = 5 frog bounces = 6 goat skips. But none of the animals can match the world-record-holding snow leopard! At the end, kids will discover how many jumps it would take each one to go all around the globe.

Alison Limentani has a degree in Animal Behavior and worked as a zookeeper before training as a veterinary nurse. Her first picture book (How Much Does a Ladybug Weigh?) was published to great acclaim, making the New York Public Library’s Best Books for Kids list in 2016. She is also the author of How Long Is a Whale? and How Tall Was a T.rex?
