This is a good example of an informational book because it tells about the life of a booby bird that lives in the Galapagos Island by Ecuador and also gives information about other animals that live on the island. Media: Water colors

I like Blue Footed Boobies. This book is good it tells about one named Pepe. He is a good bird who has adventures and gets married. I will buy it again because I liked it so much.
