Children will learn the wonders of God's creation through photos and facts about creation as well as added bonus material. All facts align with Common Core Standards for informational reading for young readers. 

Featuring favorite animals from all over the world, Curious Creatures makes reading and learning fun. This non-fiction collection includes four complete level 2 I Can Read! titles with photos and facts showing children the wonder of God's creation. All four books help children grow in both reading and comprehension skills. Loved by parents, educators, and children alike, this Made By God bind-up also features bonus fun facts about these amazing animals.

Titles include:

Rainforest Friends

Jungle Beasts
Polar Pals
Curious Creatures Down Under


Being Level 2, the book was a great read for Miss Grace- she was captivated by all the animals, and was able to read most of the words, with help on harder/longer words. I loved how God was incorporated into a scientific book, in a manner that was 'normal' and not preachy!

The timing was great, as Miss Grace went to see Rio2 with Papa the same week we receive the book! So she was quite eager to get through Rainforest Pals and to check out more info on the animals from the cartoon! With Prince William's visit to New Zealand and Australia also in the news, it was very helpful to pull up the Curious Creatures Down Under book and find animals that were being talked about as well! Miss Grace wants to be a scientist when she grows up, so she eagerly went through the other 2 books as well!

This is a great compiled book that younger kids in the preschool- 3rd grade age group (ages 4-8) will love- all kids that age love hearing about exotic and wild animals! This would be a great book to add to your Summer reading curriculum, and it would be great to read before or after a trip to the zoo!
