My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy from Callisto Publisher’s Club. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

What an interesting book! You don’t have to be a kid to appreciate The Fascinating Animal Book for Kids. I learned a lot. For example, did you know that a car could go 20 miles using the methane gas produced by one elephant’s farts in a single day? Just like the title says, it’s fascinating. Another example is that I knew that the Immortal Jellyfish can live forever. But I didn’t know that it grows to adulthood then reverts back to being a baby, over and over again.

The Fascinating Animal Book for Kids is full of gems like my two examples. It also has pictures of the animals. It’s in six color-coded chapters: Magnificent Mammals, Creepy Crawlies, Water World, Scaly Things, Amazing Amphibians, and Feather Friends. The only thing I noticed that would make it better is if there was an index. I only noticed that because I went to look up the jellyfish for this review, and I had to go to the Water World section and look through to find the jellyfish. It’s not a big deal but worth mentioning.

I definitely recommend The Fascinating Animal Book for Kids for all ages. It will give you hours of entertainment with interesting facts about animals of every kind.
