Sandra Markle and Howard McWilliam had a blast imagining what it would be like to have all kinds of animal ears in their book What if You Had Animal Ears!? We tracked down this author-illustrator team and asked them which animal ears they secretly prefer—check out their answers in this fun exclusive video!
Please share the video with your class, then ask your students which animal ears they would like to have. We’d love to hear from your class, so please share your answers on social media with the hashtag #ScholasticBookClubs.
