I was given the opportunity to review the e-book: "Drinking Animals" by Dan Jackson. It is a fun and educational book! While my little lady is quite young for anything deemed "educational," I still appreciate when things are meant for more than just fun. I have worked with children for long enough to realize the importance of combing the two.
"Drinking Animals" does a fine job of that! Each page pairs a picture with a fun caption and an educational fact.
|Who knew dogs needed so much water? I learned a thing or ten from this book!|
Unfortunately I only have a Kindle Paperwhite, so it doesn't display the color. But from the images I have seen online, the images are really quite vivid - definitely something children would appreciate.
I think it will be a fun book that Aelah will definitely enjoy when she is older. It even has a giraffe...which is our favorite:
|Giraffes look so awkward when they drink....|
For now, she enjoys books she can get her hands on (which means board books are our friends...)
|She so does love reading.|
However, I can envision the child reading the quirky captions for the pictures and an adult chiming in with the facts.
All in all, it is a very cute book that is full of great pictures, education, and fun!
What is your favorite children's book? I'm looking to grow our collection...
