Review for My Animal Book by Okido

A hands-on, action-packed title that asks and answers questions young children often have about animals.

How do animals live? What do they eat? Is a human being an animal? Children have all sorts of questions about animals, and in My Animal Book those questions are answered. A little girl named Koko helps children to think about animals and make comparisons with their own lives. There are also three intrepid explorers who go on adventures to a variety of places to find out about different species. Young readers investigate each topic by playing and learning.
