Through Kids' Eyes
As an Elementary Classroom Teacher, I have invited several young readers to assist me in reviewing this book. Each student selected their favorite "animal in action."
M. H. - chose the "Chipmunk collecting" because she liked seeing it in the forest.
W. - selected the "Chameleon crossing" because it was crossing to a new tree!
K. D. - picked the "Kittens cuddling" because she loves kittens!
K. K. - also chose the "Kittens cuddling" because kittens are cute.
J. - also liked the "Kittens cuddling" because the babies were snuggling with their mother.
N. - selected the "Jaguar crouching" because it was looking for another animal to eat.
A. - also picked the "Jaguar crouching" because it looked like it was hunting.
M. - chose the "Lion clawing" because they looked like they were getting ready to fight.
All of the students were eager to see each of the animals in nature. They had fun decoding the "-ing" words as they discovered what the animals were doing in the amazing closeup photographs. Everyone loved using the "buttons" that allowed them to hear the awesome animal sounds and to select additional photos. This is a perfect book for young readers as they learn about animals in their natural habitats.
This book was very enjoyable and a pleasure to read. The photographs were nice and large, and the text was simple without being a distraction to the photos. The interactivity was smooth and flawless. Readers will have a great time navigating this beautifully created book.
