The Lovereading4Kids comment

Splash! Playing in water is great fun, for animals as well as humans, but of course there are other reasons for animals to go into water. Divided into four different sections – ocean, water-hole, river and pond – this book shows how different animals act in water and teaches young readers about the natural world. There are photos of kingfishers, dolphins, elephants, crocodiles and caimans, even an orang-utan. Simple, informative lines of text explain what the animal is doing and why. Some of the photos are simply stunning, and there’s lots of information here to intrigue young animal lovers. ~ Andrea Reece

Splash is packed full of pictures of water-loving animals splashing, preening, flapping and paddling. Each photograph is accompanied by fun facts about the animal and how they use water, be it for fun, to clean or to find food. Organised by four distinct water sources - ocean, watering-hole, river and pond - children will learn where their favourite animals live and discover more about their behaviour. Stunning photographs and easy-to-read text make this book perfect for young readers.

Reviews

Each photograph is accompanied by informative facts about the animal and how they use water, whether it's for food, to travel, to breed or simply for fun. There are some very unusual creatures included. The easy-to-read text makes this book ideal for young readers. I would like to see a contents page and/or an index though Parents in Touch Here, you will fins 46 amazing animals, some familiar and some... well, not so familiar! This book is filled from cover to cover with fantastic photos, the kind with such clarity, that when you look closer for detail, you are not disappointed. Animal lovers everywhere will love to 'dive into
