How could I resist this book? Animals? Eyeballs? Come on through, bring it to momma! Haha. Sorry, I just really love books about animals (well, as soon as they start talking I am out looks at fantasy novels).
This book is all about the ABC on animals! We get a close-up (or closer-up) on the eye of an animal fitting the letter with a fun/pretty illustration, but that is not all! This book also gives you facts about the animals eyes. For instance an eel has camouflaged eyes and do not have movable eyelids! Or did you know… that giant squid’s eyes are as a big as a a basketball shocked face. The facts are all interesting and I love that they were added. I thought this would be just an ABC featuring animals and their eyeballs so this adds a whole lot of more to the book!
I loved the animals picked. It was an interesting bunch of animals! Not always the standard animals one may see in ABC books. I loved seeing animals like Indris make their way to the pages, but also loved seeing Night Crawlers, Quolls, Uakaris.
Next to getting the letter (both in capital and normal) and the animal and information about the animal, we also get sayings + explanations. For instance: “To have stars in your eyes means that you want to be famous.” I am not sure how I feel about the sayings, I mean, I came here for the ABCs with animals and eyeballs, so I am a bit on the fence about it.
The art (at least it looked like art) was pretty good. Not always, but 90% of the time I loved it.
All in all, if you are looking for a fun ABC book and want to learn more about animals and eyes, be sure to pick up this book!
