Moreover, the fun explanations of animals are introduced at the beginnin of the ook in small text.

It might be ifficult for children to read this small texts since this ook is an alphabet book.

The first page of the novel has fun facts about all the animals shown throughout the book.Professional Recommendation/Review# 1: Publishers Weekly-Skillfully blending counting and matching elements into an animal-themed abecedary, Cooper invites readers to spot eight animals for each letter, nestled alongside other creatures whose names begin with the same letter.

The animals ’ names run along the bottom of each page, and a closing list offers intriguing details about the more than 150 creatures Cooper includes, while helping identify the less-familiar quoll, uakari, and yabby, among others.Professional Recommendation/Review# 2: Kirkus Review- A distinctive animal alphabet presents a counting game.The cover displays a large, shiny number eight.

The heavy paper will withstand repeated viewings, which are guaranteed.Don ’ t get behind the eight ball: order now; it ’ s great fun.Response to Two Professional Reviews: The list at the beginnin of the book explaining the unique facts about the nimals really is an nteresting thing I think kids would enjoy.

I think kids would like reading these facts because they ’ re not common facts you would usually know about the animal such as, “ Lizards smell with their tongues. ” The reviews do a decen job at describing the other great aspects of the essay, such as the reaso that it lists all the animal ’ s names shown on the page with that certain letter of the alphabet.Evaluation of Literary Elements: The overall heme of the memoir is really fun as readers have to find the animal on each page that occurs eight times.

The author provided multiple characters of animals which really helps kids learn about all different animals.Consideration of Instructional Application: I would use this book in my classroom for kids to read over when they are trying to learn the letters of the alphabet.
