Jungle Jack Hanna's The Wackiest Wildest, Weirdest Animals In The World (Book Review)

Thursday, June 18, 2009

God's creatures aren't just great and small. Many of them are also wacky, wild, and weird!

My animal loving (to an extreme!) 4 year old couldn't hardly contain himself as we pulled Jungle Jack Hanna's The Wackiest, Wildest, Weirdest Animals In The World from the box.

A brightly colored cover with clear, bold photographs inside appealed not only to him, but me as well. (And a 20 minute DVD with Jack Hanna full of bloopers and behind-the-scenes footage was icing on the cake!)

We immediately sat down and read this interesting and entertaining children's book.

Some of the things we learned included:

  • A young hyena is called a whelp.

  • Cape Buffalo can weigh up to 1,000 pounds

  • The plate on each armadillo's head is unique just like human fingerprints

  • An octopus has three hearts

Not only is this an attention-catching children's book, but an excellent learning tool; especially for the curious preschooler or early elementary student.
