Book Review :: Curious Creatures by Zondervan

Curious Creatures is a great new book to share with a 4-8 year old who loves to learn about God's creatures. This book is a compilation of four titles in the I Can Read! Made By God series: Rain Forest Friends, Jungle Beasts, Polar Pals, and Curious Creatures Down Under.

In Curious Creatures, each of the 4 sections of the book features 4 different animals. Here is the breakdown:
Rain Forest Friends:
- Anaconda
- Bengal Tiger
- Spider Monkey
- Toucan
Jungle Beasts:
- Panther
- Anteater
- Elephant
- Iguana
Polar Pals:
- Emperor Penguin
- Arctic Tern
- Polar Bear
- Arctic Fox
Curious Creatures Down Under:
- Koala
- Kangaroo
- Echidna
- Platypus

I do not own any of the 4 individual titles, but just from looking at previews, I believe this compilation is a larger format. The cover of Curious Creatures measures approximately 9 1/2" x 9 1/2".

The pictures are big, clear, and colorful. (There is at least one picture on every two-page spread, but generally there are two pictures per two-page spread.) The text is easy to read, and the bonus facts on the side of each page are interesting. Curious Creatures is informative and I enjoy that it always comes back to how God created and cares for each creature.

And at less than $10 - Curious Creatures is a book that is a perfect choice for a gift.
