Review for Animal Teams
I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.
I just adore books about animals and so when I saw this one on Netgalley I just had to click that request button! Then it was hoping and waiting but I got it! And here I am!
This book is all about teamwork. Yep, we humans often do teamwork, but animals do it as well, and in this book we get to see some amazing feats of animal teamwork! Each animal gets 4 pages with fun facts and gorgeous art! There are 6 main teams and at the end we also get some extra teams.
I loved reading about the various teams and I want to applaud to the writers of the book that they added plenty of information… but didn’t cram it full. Unlike another animal book I tried to read in July which had just so much text that it got very tiny and just cluttered. This one has plenty of fun facts but not too many! Just the most important one. In normal/good font. And the facts were very fun to read. Most I already knew, but that is what you get when you are an adult and have been reading animal books since young age. XD Younger me, if she magically could read this much English at age 7/8 would have loved it and learned quite some new things. But as an adult I learned a few new things! Like how squirrel monkey males grow bigger in the shoulders/arms when it is mating season! Or why sardines have such large eyes but no eyelids.
As I said earlier, there are at the end some other teams. Like bees, but also jaguars and more! I really liked that these were added, though I would have liked to get the information why they make a good team to be included in the block of text (with cute picture) we get of each animal. I mean, the introduction mentions 4 of the 5 animals and why they make a great team, which is nice, but that leaves one animal out. So maybe just list it in the blocks?
I love that we get a mix of illustrations and photography. Like with the black-capped squirrel monkey and we got to see some adorable illustrations with some real animals in between. So cute! So fun!
All in all, a really fun informative book about teams and animals, I am sure this will be loved by many!
