As you all know we love animals here and we’ve been learning about some rather strange one in the latest book we’ve been sent to review for Sterling Books. Weird Animals is written by Mary Kay Carson and is aimed at children aged 6-11 years of age.
The 32 page hardback book is full of colour photographs with facts relating to a range of Weird Animals. The various weird features of each animal is explained in an easy way for children to understand.
The book features fourteen different Weird Animals that children may not have come across before, and explains what makes them different from more familiar creatures. We’ve certainly not come across a Pink Fairy Armadillo before and the size of its feet makes perfect sense for the job it needs to do.
There are some really rather beautiful animals featured including the Peacock Mantis Shrimp and the Mirror Spider, which really does look like someone’s stuck bits of glass to its body. Then there’s the Thorny Devil, which does look familiar. I’m not sure if we’ve seen them at a Zoo or Wildlife Park, but my nine-year old son agreed with me that he’d seen these in real life too. He loves the idea of having a false head!
The Sea Pig looks very curious and is definitely a new one for us. Animals of the deep fascinate my son so he was eager to learn more about this deep-sea animal.
Weird Animals is a great addition to our bookcase. I’ve included my Amazon Affiliate link below (I can earn from qualifying purchases) in case you fancy looking at these fascinating animals too.
