Wildlife field biologist Kathleen Yale takes kids on a journey through the wonders of the animal kingdom, exploring the distinctive habits and behaviors of thirteen different mammals, reptiles, and insects from around the world. In charmingly illustrated spreads, the animals introduce themselves, where they live, and their key behaviors such as camouflage, pollination, and foraging. Then engaging activities teach kids how to “think like an animal” by mimicking each animal’s distinctive habits, movements, and sounds – from balancing an egg like an emperor penguin to stalking like a camouflaged leopard.
A Mom’s Choice Gold and National Parenting Product Awards winner and Creative ChildMagazine book of the year, Howl Like a Wolf! includes eleven colorful, child-size pop-out animal masks to accompany the book in fostering fun learning and creative play.

HOWL like a WOLF
Ayhoooooooo! Hear me howl! I'm a gray wolf. Well, that's my name, but actually, my thick, warm fur can be gray, brown, black, or even pure white.
Gray Wolf Canis lupus
I'm a social animal, so I like to hang out with my fellow wolves. I live in a pack with my parents, older siblings, and littermates. My parents are the alphas — that means they're in charge — and the rest of us follow their lead.
Most of the time our pack is on the move, hunting and patrolling the borders of our territory. In fact, we often run 10 to 20 miles a day — even up to 50 miles when we need to. On our way, we pee and poop at the edges of our range so that when other wolf packs smell our markings, they know to keep out. It's kind of like having a fence around your backyard.
We hunt together for large prey like deer, elk, moose, and bison, but we chase smaller prey like rabbits, squirrels, and mice, too. We hunt in order to eat, but we don't kill for fun, and we rarely waste food.
Hunting big animals is hard and dangerous work.
What Big Teeth You Have!
A wolf's teeth are sharp, big, and heavy. They look a lot like your pet dog's teeth, but wolves' jaws are much stronger. In fact, the force of their bite is strong enough to break bones.
It Takes a Pack
Every spring, the alpha female finds or digs a safe den for her new pups. It might be underground, or in a hillside, or under a rock or the roots of a tree. While she's nursing the pups, the rest of us bring her food so she doesn't get hungry. When the pups get big enough to start playing outside, the whole pack helps take care of them, bringing them food to eat and sticks to play with, and teaching them how to be wolves.
Everyone loves the pups!
Why Do Wolves Howl?
Wolves don't really howl at the moon. We just like to run around at night, and we howl with our heads back to help the sound carry. So why do we howl?
- To remind intruders to stay away. You can hear a howl through the forest up to six miles away, and even farther across open land!
- To find packmates who may have wandered off.
- For fun! I like howling with my family when we're excited about something — it's like a big, furry group hug.
Now you be a wolf!
Your wolf mission is to get your pack together, protect your territory, and, of course, give a good howl!
