I Am a Capybaras - a bookwrap


Featured snippet from the web

The capybara is basically a giant guinea pig that can grow to up to 140 pounds on a diet of grass — and its own poop. These social, almost cow-like creatures are native to South America, where they spend their lives moving back and forth between grasslands and water.

Unwrapping Some Great Illustrations for You

The Book

This is Michela Fabbri's debut book.  She highlights the interesting and oftentimes unfamiliar animal.... the capybara.  It is often mistaken for a beaver, a bear or a mouse but it's none of those.  

This adorable capybara is a wee bit different from the standard ones.  This one loves poetry, the opera and even dressing up in costumes.  He is refined and full of adventure.  He tells his readers all about himself and reveals that his best friend is a little bird. They share life together. 

Capybaras love to hang out in groups and he shares that he loves cuddles and care a lot.  Kids will be delighted to learn all about this interesting animal and the author does a splendid job of informing the reader through her simple illustrations and witty narrative about his feelings and experiences.  The message of the book highlights family, community living and discovery of new things.  It is a wonderful book to add to a classroom collection or place in an elementary school library.  I recommend it.
