Book Review~ Weird & Wonderful Creations

From the Made by God series, Weird & Wonderful Creations, 4 books in 1, introduces children to a variety of creatures. Written on a second grade reading level, the four books included are: 1-Spiders, snakes, bees, and bats, 2- Big bugs, little bugs, 3- Sea creatures, 4- Poisonous, smelly, and amazing plants. The reader learns about eagles, tarantulas, butterflies, jellyfish, sea horses, sea turtles, mushrooms, the Venus flytrap, redwood trees, and more.





The detailed and clear photographs take up at least half of each page. There are usually 5 lines of text per page and plenty of white space.  The side bars offer more facts about the species such as, “Sea horses make clicking noises when they eat” and “The Goliath beetle’s leathery wings can be larger than a sparrow’s.”

This hardback book provides over 200 facts in its 110 pages. It is nicely bound and makes a good nonfiction addition to a children’s library. Even though he can’t read yet, my three-year-old enjoys the pictures and asking about the creatures. Since we already own Curious Creatures, 4 books in 1, I am glad to have a copy of this book in our collection, too.

4 out of 5 stars

Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion through the BookLook Blogger program.
