Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jillian Kobelin
Did you know that polar bears are the biggest meat-eaters on land? Or that penguins can swim at speeds of up to 15 miles per hour? Animal lovers will be excited to learn about fuzzy, cuddly creatures in this four-in-one book. The book is split into four sections: polar bears, monkeys, penguins, and animal babies. Each section contains a table of contents, dozens of pictures, fun facts, and a glossary, along with plenty of other features. Kids can stump their parents with quizzes or tell animal jokes that are scattered throughout the book. The book is visually attractive, using bright colors, eye-catching pictures, and a variety of layouts to draw in readers. There are fact blurbs, labels, photos, and text on every spread. This book could be used for reading enjoyment, school reports, or even to build excitement about a visit the zoo. Kids may start spouting out penguin facts or naming the different species of monkeys on the next zoo trip! Reviewer: Jillian Kobelin; Ages 5 to 8.
