Whether your exploring your own backyard or climbing a mountaintop, you’re sure to encounter birds, insects, reptiles, amphibians, fish, and all kinds of amazing mammals along the way. But did you know that a queen bee can lay up to 1,000 eggs in a day? Or that huge, dinosaur-like dragonflies use to exist? Organized in a see, learn, do format, The Kids’ Ultimate Animal Adventure Book first lays the groundwork for observing and learning about animals—from their behavior and habitat to the truths and myths about them. It also includes animal-related activities, like going owling, planting a garden for butterflies, and catching frogs.Breana Roy
