These books are fun, light reads, perfect for students fascinated with the natural world. Corwin does a nice job of seamlessly integrating information about each of the environments the kids visit into the story, allowing the reader to experience the excitement of discovering things on one's own. The author's passion for the natural world shines through and urges the reader to a greater appreciation of the natural world.
I just recently discovered Jeff Corwin (thank you netflix) and was excited to hear that he wrote chapter books for young readers. This book was a good start to what I hope will be a fun and educational series for my daughter and I to share. We loved all the bits of animal trivia throughout the book, and how we can enjoy and appreciate nature right in our own back yard.
