Welcome in Fall with a Good Book -- If Your Child Likes Creepy and Gross Things, Then They Will Love "Strange, Unusual, Gross & Cool Animals (An Animal Planet Book) by Charles Ghigna (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent a review copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.

Like I shared earlier, my oldest daughter is all about books that include cats and dogs, while my other daughter gravitates more towards history and biographies.  But, when it comes to bugs and other gross and unusual animals, they both go crazy for this sort of thing.  So, when I saw Animal Planet was coming out with the book, "Strange, Unusual, Gross & Cool Animals (An Animal Planet Book)," I knew two girls who would love to get their hands on a copy, and read through the pages.  And, that they were!  I showed my girls this book a few weeks ago, and they grabbed it from my hand and rushed to the couch to sit together, flipping through the pages.  The grosser and more unusual the better, and this book had enough weird and strange animals that made my girls smile. :-)  

The book is broken down into four sections:
  1. Strange Animals
  2. Unusual Animals
  3. Gross Animals
  4. Cool Animals
The animals featured in the book come from all walks of life, which makes reading through the book that much interesting, as you never know what animal you will learn about next.  And, the pages are filled with full-color photos so you can see these animals close up.  My girls really had fun flipping through the pages of this book chock full of odd creatures that you can't wait to learn more about.  Yes, some are weird, and some are scary or disgusting, but they are all amazing and learning about them is made fun with this book.

About this book:

"Animal Planet presents the ickiest, stickiest, blobbiest, and oddest animals in the world!

Did you know that an archerfish can spit water up to 16 feet? Or that the giant weta is the world's largest and heaviest insect? Animal Planet's fascinating exploration of animal oddities introduces young animal lovers to some of the most astonishing, gorgeous, and obscure animals in the world-including some brand new discoveries! Packed with more than 200 vibrant photographs and fun facts about animals with unusual behaviors, strange appearances, and remarkable stats, this deluxe gift book is perfect for reluctant readers or anyone who loves totally gross and amazing animals. 

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of books in the Animal Bites series benefits the principal partners of R.O.A.R. (Reach Out. Act. Respond.), Animal Planet's initiative dedicated to improving the lives of animals in our communities and in the wild."
