Children's Book Review and #Giveaway: Animalogy

Tuesday, October 11, 2011 Posted by Dina N

Book Description
Compare and contrast different animals through predictable, rhyming analogies. Find the similarities between even the most incompatible animals... bat is to flit as eagle is to soar; dog is to bark as lion is to roar. Comparisons include sounds, physical adaptations, behaviors, and animals classes and are so fun, readers learn without even realizing it! Animals are to nature, as Animalogy is to fun!

My Thoughts
My kids and I are big fans of Sylvan Dell Publishing. They offer books that are fun, educational, and beautifully illustrated. Animalogy is no exception. This book provides a great opportunity to teach young children about analogies. Thanks to Animalogy, my daughter got the hang of it quickly. We even made analogies into a game - a wonderful way to pass the time when we are driving to and from errands and after-school activities.

The illustrations are wonderfully vivid and detailed. At the end of Animalogy, there is a section For Creative Minds: six pages of additional information and discussion points about animals and analogies. Even parents may learn a thing or two - or remember what they used to know - about animal classification.

Animalogy: Animal Analogies, written by Marianne Berkes and illustrated by Cathy Morrison, is recommended for ages 4-8.

One lucky U.S. reader will win a copy of Animalogy!
