What I Thought about these books- This was a nice look into basic farm animals that kids know and love and wild animals that some kids may never have heard of. The books are organized very well, and are eye-pleasing. Kids will love looking at the fact boxes and realizing that baby ostriches are as big as chickens when hatched and that a Valais Blacknose Sheep is about as tall as a skateboard. It includes ways that kids are similar to the animals, and things you can do to help the animals. The photos are big, bright, and capture the spirit of the animals! The author has a way of writing nonfiction while still making it interesting to kids, keeping them reading. I recommend these books to kids that want to know about these types of animals, and to classrooms to open a unit.

I give these books five out of five bookworms!fivebooks
