Did You Know? Hippos can’t swim

Published May 12, 2015 by neverwearmatchingsox

This book happened to be at my scholastic bookfair and the cover art grabbed my attention. I didn’t have time at that moment to see if it was fiction or non fiction but I purchased it for school and today I got to read it. ADORABLE. Writing a non fiction book aimed at kids is a talent…it has to grab their attention enough for them to read it through and not overwhelm them with facts they can’t remember. What I really liked about this book is that facts about one animal will lead to facts about a completely different animal (squirrel have pouches they store their food in, kangaroos have pouches too but those are used for their babies). We start on page one with hippos and end with blue whales and a whole lot in between. I had no idea this was a series so I’m going to order the whole thing!
