We received this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review for this blog tour! So thank you to the publishers! Let’s just hop right into the thoughts from a seven-year-old:
I liked how detailed the pictures were the map even looked real, it was so colourful and there was a lot of stuff to look at. And that’s good because I liked looking at the pictures. I also liked learning about the animals I didn’t know about arctic foxes or that there were so many different types of turtles..or tortoises? [it was tortoises] yes, that’s what I meant. But yes my favourite part of the book was seeing all of the different types of animals and seeing how they all have different things that work with where they live. It was a good book and also a learning book.
I agree with my daughter! It was a fun book, I like when it’s educational as well as a good story. It was a little bit awkward to read at times with the names of the animals on the pages too (just because as I was reading my daughter would interrupt with reading the “sea lion, flamingo” etc.) but that was the only problem with the book! The pictures were fun and bright but not overwhelmingly so. It was a really good book with a fun story and great art! We would both absolutely recommend this book!
I rate this book
9/10 for story and 10/10 for illustrations
