    The close up photographs of the animals in this book are stunning in their detail The text is kind of extraordinary as well Each page features a large sharp photo of an animal with a curious distinction acccompanied by a brief first person description of that distinction spoken by the animal itself The American toad for example explains how his bumpy skin is appealing than the slimy skin of the American toad on the facing page This is exceedingly well done and would be ideal to use in teaching personification

    Review via at Cracking the Covert is said that a picture is worth a thousand words Such is the case with David FitzSimmons‘ “Curious Critters” a photographic collection of everyday animals and insects that will knock your socks offThe 21 Curious Critters included in this book range from an American bullfrog and southern flying suirrel to a bubble gum pink bush katydid and a spotted salamanderEach subject appears against a white backdrop which helps showcase colors textures and shapes without any distractions “Curious Critters” is a visual showcase but it’s also meant to be educational too Along with each image is a vignette told from the critter’s perspectiveDavid a former high school English teacher reviewed national science education standards prior to writing these vignettes which he says address all the National Research Council’s life science standards for grades K 4A natural history section at the end of the book offers additional information on each of the critters and a two page spread shows how the animals relate to each other size wiseThough the text in “Curious Critters” isn’t overly detailed it’s perfect for this setting and the additional blurbs about each critter toward the end helps to fill any apparent holes earlier on The photographs are clear and incredibly detailed making the critters appear as if they’re literally sitting across from you“Curious Critters” is a conversation starter Children and adults will look at these images with wonder and giggle over the animals’ “thoughts” It’s a great way of introducing children to the world around them
