As far as Children's books are concerned this one was pretty good. It is a Level Two book and it is consistent with what it promises to deliver on it's cover. It begins with a note to the parents. This is what I look for in most early reading books. If a parent hands this book to a child without reading this first note, then the parent is doing a child a disservice. Parents should be involved at this level, with children's readings. The forward to the parents set the expectations of what is inside and helps the parents help the child stay on target...focused with what they are reading. Kudo points for this.

The Text is a good clear font and it is mixed well with pictures that give the beginning reader hints as to what they words may say. As opposed to early level books, this book has full sentences so that the beginning reader can begin and end thought processes. This is a good thing. Of course, all the cool animals are covered. Bears, Scorpions, Snakes, Tigers, etc. Children dig reading about animals such as these.

But the thing I liked most about this book is the quiz at the end. If the parent is involved with the child's reading, they will be able to gauge one of the most important aspects of the child's reading; comprehension. I have seen so many kids handed books and they look like they are reading it, but when asked what it was about, or can you tell me the main plot of the story they give you the deer in the headlights look. By providing this small simple quiz at the end, the parent can tell, not only if the child read the book, but if the child actually understood what he or she was reading.

This book is worth a look see for the beginning reader. ( )
