My niece, nephew, and I enjoyed this book. We all like learning about animals, and there were several interesting facts presented in this book that were new to us. As Peacegal
noted in her review
, however, there were many animal facts that were already well known to the kids (and my nephew is only four).
The book did hold the kids' attention, though, and although they already knew many of the facts presented here, that was ok. First of all, the book added to their appreciation of animals. Secondly, they got excited when something they knew was reinforced by what we were reading, and it also gave them the opportunity to share their knowledge with me. I always enjoy hearing what the kids know, and books like this help their minds grow.
