When I was in high school, took once a book from the library of S. Starikovich "the Menagerie on the porch". The book I liked this so much that I read it greedily. In the book with inimitable humor, very vivid talked about the animals that surround us every day, but about which, as it turns out, we practically very little is known about dogs and cats, hedgehogs and squirrels, lizards and God the cows...
Did you know for example, that the dog is perfectly classifies vowels? Do you know accounting abilities crows? Did you know that inside the frog is the tank? Have you ever wondered about how ants spend their leisure time?
The answers to these and many other questions can be found in this book.
We didn't want to return the book back to the library, but when it still had to do, I knew the book almost by heart. And now I really want to share the reading with you. But to get this book in libraries or even more to buy it today, it is almost impossible.
Knowing that today's children are not very fond of reading, and that screen reading is not very convenient, I broke all the chapters for a few short parts for your convenience.
