You know I've found an outstanding book to share when I show up out of the blue for the first time in over six months on the blog. Well… I did (and I found it at a thrift store for $1.00, I just tell you that part to make you super jealous). Life-Size Zoo: From Tiny Rodents to Gigantic Elephants, An Actual-Size Animal Encyclopedia by Teruyuki Komiya, published in 2008. (And when I went to get the link, I found out there are several other similar books by the same author! Score!)
It's such a cool book! Life size pictures means life size pictures! It's filled with all kinds of fun and hilarious facts (like those ones about tigers pictured above). All kinds of animals are featured including fold out pages for the really big ones (like elephant and rhino).
I'm a total sucker for excellent non-fiction (always have been). This is excellent non-fiction! Find yourself a copy. You won't regret it!
