My Thoughts on Animal Bites: Farm Animals

My kids adore this series of Animal Bites books from Animal Planet. Farm Animals is no exception to this adoration. Big, beautiful pictures of all their favorite animals sit alongside fact bubbles and interesting snippets of information.

What I like about this particular book is that most of these animals can be found easily. Horses, cows, and chickens can be seen frequently on a drive through the countryside. It’s a fun book to read and get to know these common animals a little better. Kids can recognize their favorites and find out new information about them.

I love this entire series. Animal Planet did a great job at laying out visually appealing and informative books. They’re perfect for kids ages 7-10, and will even appeal to kids on either end of that age spectrum.
