Unwrapping Some Illustrations 

The Book

This amazing book is a true winner.  It is educational and full of facts about familiar and unfamiliar animals.  It poses a quiz and guessing game on one page and then is followed up with actual information about those animals on the next.  The book covers a variety of categories such as: whose tongue is this?  Whose favourite foods are these?  Whose droppings are these?  Whose eyes are these?  Whose footprints are these?  Who lost a tooth? and Who hides here?  just to cite a few.  

The illustrations are bright, colourful and very child-friendly.  The text is simple and easy for a child to understand.  Adults will love to share the book again and again with their little ones because I am sure grown-ups will learn some fun facts too. I know I did to my delight! 

I never knew that a giraffe's tongue is blue and so long that it can even clean its own ears with it or that butterflies and other insects drink not only the nectar of flowers but in certain regions of the world the tears of crocodiles and caymans. Those tears contain nutrients and minerals that are otherwise difficult to find in nature.  Who knew?  Definitely not me!  The book is packed full of amazing facts that are both fascinating and mind-boggling! 

The book is a celebration of the wonders of wildlife and will keep a child engaged from beginning to end. I love this book and recommend it.  It has Storywraps endorsement for sure!
