Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings based on a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The model takes into account factors including the age of a rating, whether the ratings are from verified purchasers, and factors that establish reviewer trustworthiness.
I was aghast to read the reviews Amazon quotes on this book! It is fantastic! My children have loved it for years. It is so good that my 9-year-old will still sit and listen to it. I also take it to school on Read Across America Day and classes aged kindergarten through third have been entranced by it. It is a very good addition to every family library!
This is such a cute book! I teach 6th grade, and learning the animal kingdoms sometimes gets a little boring for some students. I have set up a trivia center where this book has become a focal point. I randomly ask the students to determine the name of the next baby animal. Not only are they interested, but they are enhancing their research skills as well. This is a great book for all ages to learn about animals.
I received a copy of this book today. I loved the rhymes and the pictures. When the author speaks of the platypus, tears came to my eyes. I plan to purchase additional copies of this book for nieces and nephews as their birthdays arise. The story is so very wonderful, for both children and adults.
