CAMELS

Let's Read and Find Out how the ""ship of the desert"" is superior to you. . . Unlike poor humans, camels have a variable body temperature, can sweat without changing the composition of their blood, store their body fat (not water) in their humps, and drink one hundred quarts of water at a time. Waters succinctly counts off these impressive advantages, and Ruffins' drawings contrasting serene camel caravans and relatively disadvantaged humans helps bring home this unusual (and for this series, challenging) comparison.
