The Illustrated Compendium of Amazing Animal Facts
Although this book was a bit smaller than I expected, it is adorable. It's full of cute illustrations and interesting facts about all sorts of animals. For instance, I had no idea that crocodiles could go without food for three years or that they swallow rocks and stones to help grind up their food. Nor did I know that the queen ant could live to be thirty years old or that bees never sleep.
This book is filled with wonderful little facts. It would make a great gift for just about anyone. The thing that would have made this book even more enjoyable is if it had been illustrated with a bit of color instead of just in black and white. Having said that, it's still a great little book that will no doubt put a smile on the face of any reader who picks it up.
Thanks to Blogging for Books for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
