              Coyote: The Barking Dog (Library Binding)

              By Lunis, Natalie

              A single coyote's howl measures around 90 decibelsabout as loud as a gas-powered lawn mower. Thats pretty noisy, but when a pack of coyotes howl together they can sound louder than the sum of their individual parts! Coyotes can change the sounds they make by altering the pitch of... their voice and the loudness of their howling. By playing with sound in this way, one small family of coyotes can make itself seem bigger and tougher than it is, which helps the coyotes protect their territory. These are just some of the interesting facts that kids will discover as they learn about the howls, growls, and snarls of these animal loudmouths. Fabulous photos and clear, easy-to-read text will engage emergent readers as they come face-to-face with these noisy animals. In addition, children discover where coyotes live, how they stay safe, and the different ways their sounds help them communicate with each otherand tell other coyotes to stay away! A Sound Check chart at the end of the book compares the decibel level of a coyote to familiar noises, including an airplane, an ambulance, and a train engine.
