Children's Book #Review and #Giveaway: Habitat Spy (Ends 7/17) CLOSED

Sunday, June 26, 2011 Posted by Dina N

Book Description
Let’s spy on plants, insects, birds, and mammals in 13 different habitats. Told in rhyming narrative, Habitat Spy invites children to search for and find plants, invertebrates, birds, and mammals and more that live in 13 different habitats: backyard, beach, bog, cave, desert, forest, meadow, mountain, ocean, plains, pond, river, and cypress swamp. Children will spend hours looking for and counting all the different plants and animals while learning about what living things need to survive.

My Review
My kids love playing I Spy. My daughter says reading Habitat Spy is like a game of I Spy - in a book. In this beautifully illustrated book, children are encouraged to explore various habitats, starting with their own back yard. Kids' natural curiosity can lead them to explore animals and plants from these habitats further, and this book builds the foundations for such a quest in way that's fun and educational.

Habitat Spy is another excellent children's book from Sylvan Dell Publishing, written by Cynthia Kieber-King and illustrated by Christina Wald. This title is available in paperback and hardcover and recommended for kids 4-8.
