The Wackiest, Wildest, Weirdest Animals in the World – Jack Hanna
In true Jack Hanna fashion comes a book that is a delight to read. In this book he describes 10 animals in each wacky, wild, or weird category. Each page includes a short bio, some fun facts and what makes that particular animal either wacky, wild or weird. There are a few snippets of the personal adventures that Jack has had with some of the animals.
I read this book to my 4 year old son, who got a kick out of the amazing pictures, amusing facts, and comical side notes. The book was set up in such a way that we were able to read about a few animals each night without losing his attention. The wording is more geared toward an older child, with little scientific vocabulary. He does well defining words, plus there is a useful glossary in the back. I really like how he mentions God. There are few animal reference books that talk about the ultimate Creator. The DVD showed bloopers from his TV show. That was entertaining, but wouldn’t add it to my favorites list. However, I would recommend this book if you enjoy reading about animals and knowing all their funny quirks!
