Auks! Learn About Auks and Enjoy Colorful Pictures - Look and Learn!

Auks! Learn About Auks and Enjoy Colorful Pictures - Look and Learn! (50+ Photos of Auks) - Becky Wolff

3 Stars, borrow

 

I do not have a cute story on Auks. I have no idea what Auks are, so it seemed like a good time to get a review on an Auk in!  Apparently, they are small birds related to puffins. And they are pretty adorable. Oh boy. The PC liberal in me cringed when the author used the word Eskimo. GROAN. Come on people, its 2014. Lets get beyond the offensive names for groups of people.  Picture quality was pretty decent and I was ready to give this “issue” of Look and Learn 4 stars. Until the author used the word Eskimo. Uggh!!!!!!!!!!!!



Did you know?

 

Auks are not closely related to penguins despite being black and white.

Modern Auks have the ability to fly.

Auks return to the same breeding grounds every year.

Auks live on the open sea.

The earliest fossils of Aujs are from 35 million years ago.
