Book Review: "Weird & Wonderful Creations"

"Weird & Wonderful Creations" contains four books in one.  

The books (which are also available separately) are:

  1. Spiders, Snakes, Bees, and Bats
  2. Big Bugs, Little Bugs
  3. Sea Creatures
  4. Poisonous, Smelly, and Amazing Plants
I read this book with my children at bedtimes.  We enjoyed the big colorful pictures and interesting facts about the animals and plants in the book.  We learned quite a few new things.  I appreciated that this book is written from a Christian worldview and talks about God creating the animals.  It was refreshing to not have to constantly correct what the book was saying (ie about evolution and etc.)  The book has the main text of the original book, but also little boxes with facts about the animal or plant along the edges of the pages.  It is very good at keeping young readers' attention.  The reading level is listed as "Reading with Help" and the back cover states "CCSS.ELA-Literacy. Rl.2.1-2.10"

I would definitely recommend this book to those with young readers.
