Explore the animal world, from aardvark to zebu! Discover hundreds of animals, great and small. Lion and lizard, whale and wombat. Learn one wild fact about each animal. (Did you know that gorillas yawn when they are nervous?) Look carefully, because for each letter of the alphabet, one animal is pictured eight times. Why 8? Come inside and find out.
Why we like it: Why 8? Because it’s the illustrator’s favorite number. Look, count, and celebrate the world of animals. There are four pages at the end of the book that give readers quirky factoids about each of the featured animals. For example, did you know a group of otters is called a “raft” or that zebra fish are see-through? Alphabet book collectors will want this to add to their collection, but every child who is intrigued with animals will find something to enjoy in this beautifully illustrated alphabet book.
