National Geographic Kids: Farm Animals Look & Learn and National Geographic Kids: Rascally Rabbits! are two books focused on animals. In the board book, the authors are teaching younger readers about animals, their sounds, and their habitats. In the paperback, chapter book, kids will learn about animal behaviors — some good, some not so good.
The Farm Animals book has photographs of real animals, like cows and chickens, and the text explains the sounds they make and what role they play. Mostly that cows give us milk and stuff of that nature, and it tells you some interesting trivia facts about each. What’s sad, however, is that these animals are only talked about in terms of what they are used for by humans.
Rascally Rabbits!, on the other hand, includes stories of rabbits that run away, escape to the great outdoors, leaving their owners — usually kids — wondering where their pets have gone. Some have been found in the barnyard, while others are found by others and returned. There are some great facts included about the animals, as well as how to protect them — such as the microchip system.
These books offer something for kids of all ages, and parents will enjoy reading the funny tales of escaping pets to their younger readers.
