These books by Animal Planet are just phenomenal. The photography and snippets of information are just enough to keep children interested. Like the title suggest, these books offer bite-size facts to engage children and keep them interested in animals. Everyone loves any baby animals because they are always so adorable and the photographers photographed some really cute babies for this edition. Even baby opossums are quite adorable hanging from a tree. All kinds of animals are featured including those you would have in your home, in your local woods, or those animals far away in jungles. Some animals babies are born ready to walk and be mostly on their own, while others need their parents for months after their birth. All this is shared in brief "bites" alongside adorable photographs of babies and sometimes their parents. 

For children who love animals or like non-fiction books, this soft cover paperback with heavy paper would be a hit for lower elementary through middle-school-aged kids.

Another phenomenal Animal Planet book for kids who love to learn about animals. This book features animals and how they get around. By starting with where the various animals live, then how their particular body features help them get around quickly or slowly. Children will learn that foxes can run at 45 mph, the basilisk lizard runs on water and doesn't sink, baby elephants travel with their moms in herds, and grasshoppers can travel 3 feet in a single leap. 

Again, the photography throughout the book is amazing and the small "bites" of information and facts sprinkled on the pages is enough to engage and interest the child to keep reading. There is a lot to learn about the wide variety of animals in this book. It's perfect for lower elementary to middle-school students.
