Award winning Unusual Animals A-Z is quirky, imaginative, educational and just plain fun. Whether it's Andre the aardvark or Zena the zorilla, each of these twenty-six unusual animals is introduced to the reader with a colorful watercolor painting and a factual characteristic. While Bernie the bearded dragon likes to bask in the sun, Morris the manatee uses his small front flippers and massive body to body surf through the waves. Each animal has the same lettered name and when the reader reaches the end, he has twenty-six chances to come up with one of his own.
What Makes it Hot Diggity Great:
This book is filled with fun and interesting facts about unique animals and their habitats. Not your typical "C is for Cat" alphabet book! Author Heather Jones clearly knows that kids are more intelligent and curious ... and capable of learning about exotic and unusual animals. Soraya Edmonds does a great job with the illustrations, each page a work of art.
