Book Review: Curious Critters
Author: David FitzSimmons
Photography: David FitzSimmons
Wild Iris Publishing
Back Cover: Can Squirrels fly?
Why do frogs sing?
How much does a bat weigh?
When do crayfish grow new legs?
What do turtles and humans have in common?
This is a must read book for kids, especially boys. The photos of the the critters featured are fabulous and kids will be engaged with the facts about each animal along with the colorful pictures. David FitzSimmons knows how to reach the audience with this fun and interesting book filled with lizzards, frogs, toads, and even a brown bat. Wouldn't want to come face to face with that one.
He includes facts about these critters and most of them can be found pretty close to home. The praying mantises who originated from China can be found in North America. Or how about the slimy salamander. And most would recognize Mr. Opossum when they saw one.
This book would be a great addition to a school library, classroom, or your collection at home. I give this book a big high five for grabbing the reader and taking him on a journey with curious critters. for more information visit www.curious-critters.com
