Book Review: The Wackiest Wildest Weirdest Animals in the World by Jack Hanna

Wacky-How would you like to be called a blue footed booby?
Wild-Did you know a lion's roar can be heard 5 miles away?
Weird-How did someone figure out that a baby okapi doesn't poop for the first two months of its' life?
In his latest offering, "Jungle Jack" Hanna takes readers on a review of some of the worlds' weirdest and most impressive creatures. With high quality photographs, bright colors and hundreds of interesting, unusual facts, he encourages young and old alike to marvel at Gods' amazing creation. While probably aimes for the 8-10 year old set, my 3 and 4-year olds loved the pictures, and my 5-year old loved the facts. Let's face it, what 5-year old boy doesn't love to hear facts that involve the word poop? Our entire family enjoyed this book, although the blooper video was not as funny as the kids were hoping for. Overall, I'd give this read 4 stars. I would have given it 5, but if I had paid the suggested retail of $19.99, I would have hoped for a book that was a little longer or had a more in-depth discussion. But, this book still makes a great starter for giving your children an appreciation for the great variety in God's creation.
