Exhausted. This will be my last read, my last review. Must get some sleep. Seventeen, almost eighteen straight hours of reading. Too many Hershey's Kisses and too much coffee. Lots of entries into contests, but, as usual, nothing won. Had a great time reading and writing and visiting blogs and playing games. 'Night all.
Life-Size Zoo by Teruyuki Komiya
I like this book so much. I pushed it off on several parents seeking books for their kids. How could someone go wrong with this book?
Here are things I liked about it: An information sheet about the animals on the front endpapers. A table of contents created to be like a zoo map (oh so clever). A part of the animal presented in full life-size. Things to look for on the drawing, up close. Cool facts about the animal.
And what great choices for animals: a panda, zebra, tiger (those scary teeth), gorilla, rhino (with a horn made of hair?), anteater (what a nose!), koala (much smaller than I would have expected), and more.
