Biggest, Strongest, Fastest
Beautifully illustrated, this book introduces your children to 14 of the most fascinating in the animal kingdom. Each 2-page spread features a world record holder animal through a picture collage and fascinating information. The large, clear print tells the record, with smaller print on the side page, providing more details. For example, "The smallest bird is the bee hummingbird" is displayed next to a beautiful illustration of a bee hummingbird and flower. On the inner page we read, "The bee hummingbird is an acrobatic flier that is only 3 inches long. It weighs 1/30 of an ounce-less than a dime." This may quickly become a favorite read aloud for the little ones in your family! Recommended resource for the Memoria Press Simply Classical Curriculum. 32 pgs, pb. ~ Deanne
The biggest snake, the anaconda, can swallow a deer or goat whole. The smallest mammal, the Etruscan shrew, could easily sleep in a teaspoon. In a striking full-color collage, each spread of Biggest, Strongest, Fastest portrays an animal that stands out in the animal world as the largest, slowest, longest lived. Readers can see the animal's size in relation to something familiar, and a chart on the last page indicates the size, weight, and diet of each animal, as well as where it can be found in the wild. Biggest, Strongest, Fastest is an entertaining, informative introduction to the "world records" held by fourteen members of the animal kingdom.
