Today I’m bringing you a children’s book review with the chance to win 1 of 2 copies for yourself! This review is all about Funny Bums, Freaky Beaks and other incredible creature features, which was published by Welbeck Publishing. It can be purchased on Amazon*.
A delightful compendium of all the most unusual and unexpected features in the animal kingdom, from puzzling toes to weird ears, and all the other body parts in between! These creatures have strange features – but they all serve a very useful purpose! This charming and visually appealing book carries the underlying message that everybody and everything is strange and wonderful in its own way – difference should be celebrated!
This term at school Erin has been learning a lot about different kinds of animals and even had a tarantula in as well as some duck eggs in an incubator. At home, we’ve been doing our own learning about animals and bugs and I just knew that Erin would love this book!
Funny Bums, Freaky Beaks and other incredible creature features is such a great resource to help children realise that animals are really fascinating creatures and that there are a lot of amazing things to learn about them. This book is set up into clear sections such as Strange Tails, Funny Bums and Extraordinary Eyes, just to name a few.
Each section uses a two page spread to showcase a few different animals and creatures with that specific feature. I think each section has around a maximum of 5 animals included so there isn’t too much to take in on each page. There are quite short paragraphs for each animal too so this is definitely a book that you can pick up and read a little bit at a time if you want to.
Erin and I had loads of fun finding out why some animals have lots of teeth or crazy tails. It’s a really good book for helping children to be more interesting in the animal world.
