The kids always like the books that show the animals, don't they? And none is cuter than this new book release from QEB Publishing: My Little Book of Animals.
The book is hardcover and has quite the selection of cute pictures and fun facts to share. The photographer did a great job capturing the animals in their natural habitats, which makes it even more fun to read, and the facts as seen in action shots, oh so easy to remember.
The page on the tree frogs freaked me out a bit. Years ago I parked under a tree with my windows wide open. Last time I ever did that because a tree frog, that made his way to my dashboard while I was driving, almost gave me a heart attack. He was so slimy and grooooooooooooss. When he jumped, I jumped, lol. I recruited a group of 'tough' teenage boys to help me get it out. They acted brave until he jumped and then they got scared too, hahahaha. They did get it out though, without hurting it, which was my only stipulation when I asked for the help. :)
If you like the book and want to pick one up of your own, it can be found for sale on Amazon. I think it's a dandy Christmas gift idea, to be sure!
Why do tigers have stripes? How does an octopus move? What do elephants use their trunks for? My Little Book of Animals answers all these questions and many more. Simple, easy-to-understand text combines with close-up photography to provide an excellent introduction to the animal kingdom. Perfect for reluctant readers, this book will hold the interest of young children and encourage them to find out more about the word around them.
