Ripley’s Awesome Animals provides fun facts about animals. These facts are not the typical ideas that people have about animals; they provide an insight about the intelligence of these animals. This book would be suitable for elementary students and belong on the class bookshelf. I rate this book four out of five stars because it has entertaining information about animals that will keep student interested. ( )
