My Animal Book: Facts and fun, Questions and answers, Things to make and do
Geared to the five- to eight-year-old group, particularly those kids fascinated by animals and who are discovering the outside world, this colorful book is full of energetic exercises to help them learn more about the biota. The colorful frames begin by describing animals as creatures that get hungry, have senses, and make babies, plus other features differentiating them from plants and stones. The book is filled with loads of investigative activities that involve matching, cutting, assembling, detecting, exploring, and more that will involve the reader in this educational operation. Puzzles include identifying the colorful denizens of the rainforest or in the marine habitat. There is even a recipe for making animal pancakes, with adult assistance, of course. And the book answers one question that always intrigues, the story of how animals have babies, whether it be a bird, an amphibian, a fish, or a mammal. In fact, even dinosaurs are covered. The vibrant illustrations, together with the graphic animation and the dynamic exercises, make this a favored selection for the young crowd.
