Review: The Wackiest, Wildest, Weirdest Animals in the World by Jack Hanna

Title:  Jungle Jack Hanna:  The Wackiest, Wildest, Weirdest Animals in the World
Author:  Jack Hanna
Photography by:  Rick A. Prebeg
Publisher:  Thomas Nelson
Format:  Hardcover with DVD of animal bloopers



Do you know what animal smells like popcorn?  Do you know what animal has three hearts?  Do you know what animal can hear a worm underground?  Jack Hanna does.  He shares these interesting facts, and many more wild and wacky things about 30 different animals in this book.

The Wackiest, Wildest, Weirdest Animals in the World is a large hardcover book with durable cardstock pages.  Brightly colored and full of quality photographs of animals, it immediately grabbed the attention of every child in my home.  The book not only contains interesting facts about the animals, but also includes interesting stories of some of Jungle Jack's experiences with these animals.  A DVD showing some of Jack Hanna's animal bloopers is included.

My children loved this book!  Both the book and the DVD were hits in our home.   I appreciate that this book proclaims God as the creator of the animals and does not reference evolution at all.  It contains exactly the type of trivia that intrigues children, and teaches us many interesting facts about God's creation and His awesome design.  The photography is excellent, providing large, clear, close-up pictures of the animals.

The book is also well-constructed.  The cardstock pages allow for hours of page turning without rumpling or ripping pages.  The hardcover also makes it easy for children of all ages to handle.  Even though they can not read, my 3 and 5 year olds enjoy looking at the pictures of the animals.

This is a quality book children will love!
