Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

The Wackiest, Wildest, Weirdest Animals in the World by Jack Hanna


The premise of the book is pretty much explained in the title. The book devotes a page to each wacky animal. There are beautiful photos of the animal with facts that explain why they are wacky.

This is an oversize beautifully done children’s book. My 3 & 5 year old grandchildren liked the pictures and having the book read to them. From the blue footed booby to the naked mole rat, they laughed and giggled. Well, the naked mole rat was more like, ugh. My 10 year old grandson read the book himself and was amused by many of the animals; he liked the naked mole rats. My personal favorite was the duck billed platypus. I really liked the book, it gives a good overview on each animal and the photos are just great. There is a DVD included with bloopers. That is nice but the book is just great. The two little ones have returned to it several times to see the “funny” animals.

I would recommend the book for all ages of children. You will have to read it to the younger kids and most likely just the balloon captions as opposed to all the text. The older kids will read it themselves and all ages will enjoy the photos. Guaranteed all of you will learn something from this enjoyable book.
