Review for Superpowers of Nature

Review for Superpowers of Nature

Superpowers of Nature: Wild Wonders of the World by Georges Feterman, Non-fiction, Children's Book, Animals, Facts, ChameleonI received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

I just couldn’t resist this book. I love books about animals and so this one had to come with me. Especially with that vibrant cover that just shouts READ ME!

The book is set in 6 sections. From Sensory Wonders to Attracting a Mate to Skilled Movers. Each section consists of animals that have that specific superpower. Like in Metamorphosis we meet the Chameleon who can do some great imitations and colour changes. Then in Attracting a Mate we have the Stag Beetle who is superstrong. I did love that there were section and I did love the choices of the animals. I liked that each animal gets two pages, one with some small stats and a photograph (not always making me happy because OMG no thank you to insects and spiders) and the other with information on what the superpower is. There is also great diversity in animals. We get big animals and small animals. Snakes, spiders, birds, and more. I loved how the text pages had background colours (like yellow for Cheetah). I learned some new things about animals.

However, and I don’t know if it is because I am tired but I just was just a bit bored. It was just animal after animal after animal. I think some fun parts in between, like with puzzles, jokes, or maybe just a duo page with some funny facts relating to a certain section would have helped for me. Now I just tuned out at times and I found myself having to re-read parts. My ADHD was just not excited any more after 30 pages (and by then I still had 60 pages to go uwu).

All in all though, despite being a bit bored, I would still recommend the book. It was definitely fun and I liked the photographs.

Star rating, 3.5 stars
