Summertime sleepers : animals that estivate

Stewart, Melissa (author.). Brannen, Sarah S., (illustrator.). Charlesbridge (Firm), (publisher.).

Summary: "Estivation is just like hibernation--only it happens in summer instead of winter. Why do some animals settle into cool, snug spots and sink into a summertime sleep? Because it's too hot for their bodies to function, or their food is in short supply. Some estivating animals sleep in groups; others rest alone. Some go on a long journey before they slumber; others hunker down right at home. From the pixie frog to the spotted turtle to the desert hedgehog, discover how a variety of animals survive by taking a break during the hottest days of the year" --
