    1. I found this book to be very informational.I found out that a lot of animals that watched on t.v or read in books as a little kid were actually real like the flying snake and flying lemur.My favorite animal in that book the red shrew that can shrink its bones and organs.This book is a book i would want to read over and over again because of all the enjoyable facts.Learning about our animals is a very interesting topic


    2. I thought that this book had stunning photos but the story itself was quite boring. I found it kinda hard to get into it but I had to really push to get through it. Some of the information was interesting but i didn't find it very intreging.


    3. Annick Press’s two new books about animals written by veteran science writers have exceptional visual treatments to suit each title and its potential readers. The jocular tone of Keltie Thomas’s Animals that Changed the World, and the seven chapters set up in text bites and inset sections, make it an accessible giggle-and-grab fact book. The busy design by Sheryl Shapiro has corralled an astonishing number of images together through some original treatments, such as a textured background of [...]


    4. Eamer's vignettes on animals that can be found in unusual places can be read aloud during the little breaks between lessons or activities. Selections can be read in as little as two minutes. I love the vignette on page 28 about mudskippers. If you have at least 10 minutes, and your smartboard is available, read the selection entitled, Pedestrians with Wings on page 32-33. Afterward show one of the short youtube videos on the Kakapo.


    5. Fascinating! The author does an excellent job introducing unusual animals that have adapted to unexpected surroundings, including air, water, and ice. The colour photographs enhance the text. A welcome change from the better known animals that are usually associated with particular habitats. My favourite was the snake that literally flattens itself and then flings itself from tree to tree in the jungle, avoiding predators on the ground. Recommended for children and adults.


    6. It would have been better suited for Silver Birch instead of Red Maple in terms of reading level, but it does contain lots of interesting bits of information. The biggest surprise for me was the entry on woodlice/potato bugs, which I had always thought of as insects! My mistake


    7. Many wonderful, weird facts offered up in an appealing format for young readers. Nothing in-depth but perhaps they'll be inspired to seek more information about their favorite new improbable beastie.
