"Weird & Wonderful Creations"
Published by Zondervan
"Weird & Wonderful Creations" is a book all about God's weird and wonderful creations. Did you know that snakes do not live in Ireland? That each species of lightning bug has its own special light flashing pattern? That even dead jellyfish can sting? That redwood trees can grow two to three feet a year when they have plenty of food? This book will tell you all kinds of facts that you didn't know about God's creations.
This is actually 4 books in 1. The four books are:
Spiders, Snake, Bees, and Bats
Big Bugs, Little Bugs
and Poisonous, Smelly, and Amazing Plants
This book is recommended for kids ages 4-8.
Mommy in PA: I got this book for my son to read. He is 9 so I figured it would be easy for him to read but still interesting enough with all of the bonus facts (our book says over 200 instead of 150 though). I was right. Amazingly there were facts in the book that he didn't already know too, which was an added bonus.
I love the fact that this book is stuffed full of beautiful photographs on every page. A lot of the pictures are close up too so you can really see what the spiders, snakes, jellyfish, etc. look like. The spider ones were a little too real though...LOL! The words on the pages are nice and large too so it makes for an easy read. It's also nice how they add the little facts along the sides, sometimes my son just likes to read those by themselves.
This is a great way to show kids how things in nature that you don't understand are there for a reason. Great example being spiders : )
I was a little confused as to why they consider this a 4-in-1 book because actually it's just a book with four chapters in my opinion. I at least expected the pages to be styled differently in each section but they look all the same and basically blend together with just the next title page to differentiate the different "books".
All in all this was a great learning experience though and would be a great book for kids who love animals or nature in general.
