1001+ Fantastic Facts About Animals
If you have kids who love animals, (and what kid doesn’t love animals?), this will be a fun book to add to your personal library. And if your kids happen to be reluctant readers who love animals, this book is a must-have. Every page is chock-full of little factoids that are pleasingly arranged with bright graphics and cute pictures of animals and show three to six interesting facts about one or two animals. For instance, “The bombardier beetle sprays explosive chemicals at any attacker.” or “The vampire squid feeds on so-called ‘marine snow’ — all the flakes of dead stuff that float down toward the seabed.” There are animals who use slime, horrible odors, prickly skin, poison, changing colors, and other fascinating devices to protect themselves. In only one animal does the male of the species become pregnant. This little book is about six inches square and nearly an inch thick, so it will fit nicely into a backpack, purse, or seat pocket. It is the perfect book to take on a long car ride to keep kids entertained (and learning!) the whole way. This is a real winner.
