Big animals? Big sales! Appeals to the many fans of Animal Planet or National Geographic, while deepening and widening their understanding of the animal kingdom.
STEM overload! Full of useful and entertaining facts and diagrams, this nonfiction science book is perfect for classroom use. Because of the author’s zoology background, it’s full of the latest research and includes animals that were only recently discovered.
Size isn’t everything. Gently encourages readers to look past appearances to understand different creatures’ strengths, reinforcing messages that teachers and parents are already sharing about body positivity.
Zoologist author. Jess is very plugged in to the latest research, and several of the animals in this book were only discovered in the last 5 years. She’s also a social media dynamo, with her own Youtube channel and a major following among educators.
A great gift for reluctant readers or junior scientists.
“Awe-inspiring…This work fits into so many lessons, from endangered species to climate change and habitat preservation, that it’s hard to imagine a collection that would not benefit from having it on its shelves. Funny, fast-paced, and full of information.” —School Library Journal
“These huge animal profiles offer enormous appeal.” —Booklist
