The short double-page spread chapters of Animals That Climb help the reader absorb the information more easily. The first three chapters introduce the topic with 'Good at climbing'; 'Climbing to survive'; and 'Adapted to climb'. The following eight chapters look at how a variety of animals, including koalas, leopards and geckos, are adapted for climbing. After this there is a quiz: 'Animal Challenge' which is based on information in the text. At the back of the book, there is a Glossary, an Index and a Find Out More section, which gives details of books and websites covering the topic.
It is illustrated with a variety of photographs and fact boxes. These are clearly set out in order to aid understanding. Some of the more difficult words, which are in bold in the text, are explained in the Glossary. There is also a detailed Contents page and a simple Index. Finally, the book has been carefully designed to introduce young readers to factual books and basic research.
