My Thoughts on Animal Bites: Wild Animals

Wild Animals explores a lot of the animals that we don’t see in the rest of the Animal Bites series. We learned about elephants, tigers, snakes, bears, and spiders. There are lots of photos and fact boxes. My kids always enjoy the “Just like me” and “Info Bites” sections.

I’m very happy with this entire series of books. They are easy to read, beautifully designed, and informative without becoming boring. The books are interesting and keep my kids engaged while we learn about different animals. These books are perfect for kids between the ages of 7-10 that like science, wildlife, and nature.

Really, you can’t go wrong with this book. It has big, colorful photos and interesting facts for kids to absorb.
