Book Review: These titles in the “Amazing Animals” series (10 new titles) reveal why even some of the world’s most well-known animals are indeed extraordinary. Double-page spreads are comprised of one page with large text made up of a few short sentences and a facing full-page, color photo of the animal in action. The spreads cover such topics as the animal’s physical characteristics, habitat, movement, and diet, as well as how the female gives birth and raises young and where humans might typically see the animal (e.g., in caves or at the zoo). Giraffes highlights this animal’s unique shape, from each giraffe having its own pattern of spots to using its long neck to watch for predators to sleeping standing up. Though undocumented, a brief folk tale about the animal concludes each book. The series’ content and design work together to develop and encourage young science readers.
