Have you ever seen a naked mole rat? Do you know what a binturong is? Do you know what kind of bird has a deadly kick? These are the world’s wackiest, wildest, and weirdest animals with expert and host Jungle Jack Hanna. As a member of Thomas Nelson’s Book Review Blogger program http://brb.thomasnelson.com/ I received this book to review last week. The minute the box was opened my kids, 8, 4, and 19 months, all attacked the package to see what was in it. A kids book! My kids devoured it from cover to cover. Jungle Jack’s is a well written simple book on some crazy animals. It is colorful with it’s huge pictures and exciting design. The large format of the book makes it great for all sizes of hands. The included DVD is a nice addition, but it could have been longer and with more animals.
The quality of this children’s book is really good. Most of the facts in the book are easily read by a child, but there are some paragraphs of info that encourage involvement by parents.
I think this book would be a great buy for any family with kids under 8 years old.
