The Secret Lives of Animals Book Review


 
I have a really fun book to share with you that I think you and your children are going to love reading and enjoying the many pictures in this book! It's called The Secret Lives of Animals written by Stacy Tornio and Ken Keffer.
 
Synopsis:
The Secret Lives of Animals is the perfect mix of field guide know-how and armchair entertainment. In addition to the standard field guide notes and range maps, the meat of the book will offer up “spark moments” in nature—something fascinating or memorable that catches your attention and sets you on a path of lifelong learning.  
The Secret Lives of Animals will feature more than 100 North American animals and over 1,000 tidbits in a fun, colorful, illustrated format.
My Thoughts:

This will be one book that you won't want to part with for yourself and your family. It's very easy to understand and the pictures are totally awesome! It's filled with little tidbits about animals that I didn't know and I am sure you will find it just as fascinating.

It's one of those rare finds that is clean, entertaining and fun for the whole family. And you will help your children understand animals better than they did before.

Happy Reading!

 
About the Authors:

Stacy Tornio is an Oklahoma girl at heart, though she’s lived in Wisconsin for the last 10 years. As editor of Birds & Blooms Magazine, Stacy is able to share her love of backyard nature. Her first book, Cathy’s Animal Garden, takes readers on a picture journey into the neighbor’s scary backyard in search of a homerun baseball.

Project Garden, her recent book, is a monthly guide filled with activities to keep the whole family gardening all year long. Along with her husband, Steve, Stacy enjoys watching her two children explore nature in their Milwaukee backyard and on trips up north.
 
Ken Keffer was born and raised in Wyoming.  A vagabond naturalist, he’s done a little bit of everything, from monitoring mice and vole populations and picking up carnivore scat in Grand Teton National Park to researching flying squirrels in the Tongass National Forest of southeast Alaska, and monitoring Bactrian camels in Mongolia’s Great Gobi Strictly Protected Area.
 
He’s also worked as an environmental educator in Wyoming, northern New Mexico, coastal Maryland, and along the shores of Lake Erie in Ohio. Ken enjoys birding, floating on lazy rivers, and fly fishing in the mountains out west.
