Synopsis

Amazing Animals by Jinny, Aut Johnson

Explorers are designed to stimulate readers in the early elementary grades (ages 7-10), who are beginning to exercise wider reading, research and cross-referencing skills. They can be read from page to page, or - as a fun extra element - the reader can follow special 'page links' to access information on related topics. Six fabulous artwork scenes are each followed up with photographic information spreads, which provide extra detail and background. In Amazing Animals readers explore the phenomenal diversity of animals around the world and their incredible adaptations for hunting, eating, defense, and caring for their young. Along the way, readers will see a wide range of habitats from the extreme heat of the Kalahari to the freezing climate of the Arctic ice.

Reviews

NSTA RecommendsThe Explorers reference series . . . provide a clever way for readers to make decisions about what they want to learn, and they encourage active reading. Amazing Animals is an engaging text, complete with a table of contents, an index, and a more to explore section for children craving more information. This is a worthwhile series to include in a K-3 classroom.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
