“Dear Tapir: Why is your nose so crooked?” So begins Creature Features. I love it when a book is in question and answer format. After all, isn’t that how parents spend the better part of their days? Answering questions, such as, “Why is the sky blue?” or “Why is a ball round?” It is nice to have all the questions and answers in one easy to read format!
Creature Features is an intriguing informational picture book with stunning, well researched close ups of 25 creatures. The collage style artwork coupled with fascinating facts makes this book a feast for one’s eyes and mind! Each creature has a unique feature that the text focuses on to explain the unique adaptations of diverse animals from all over our planet. Great conversation will accompany the reading as children and parents can share their own hypotheses as to why each animal’s features look the way they do before they turn the page to discover the truth. So, if your child loves animals and you are looking for an exciting, new read, give Creature Features a try. It is sure to be a hit with the whole family!
