Magnificent Creatures: Animals on the Move!

I've got another beautiful picture book for you today. I'm thinking I need to make this a weekly feature.

This is a nonfiction book about animals. You wouldn't think that at first glance.  It appears to be a beautiful coffee table book of gorgeous drawings of animals from around the world.The art is a mix of pen, ink, and watercolors. There are facts listed about each creature which big and small kids can internalize. Animals included are the sea turtle, springbok, jellyfish, crab, zebra, starling, monarch butterfly, bumblebee, snow goose, herring, Southern Carmine Bee-eater, and Firefly.

Verdict- buy

Magnificent Creatures: Animals on the Move! by Anna Wright

I'm a lifelong bibliophile who happens to love children's books and who should have become a librarian. Instead I horde books in case of apocalypse or the enactment of a Fahrenheit 451 type law. My five kids accept my addiction and have learned to accept books in odd places.
