Series Review: Weird, Wild, and Wonderful
"This series is well organized. Each book, except Frogs, contains a “fact file” that are charts with various information...All the books in the series have “fact bites” located throughout the books. These “fact bites” provide interesting facts about the animals in the book and are in bright yellow boxes to catch the reader’s eye. This nonfiction series will appeal to children with the wonderful photography and eye-catching format."
