Night Animals by Susan Meredith
The publisher says… Which animals come out at night? How do they find food in the dark? Where do they go during the day? In this book you’ll find the answers and lots more about the secret world of night animals. The easy-to-read text has been specially written with the help of a reading expert. Suggested Web sites add to the adventure.
Eva says… O.K., so you know what? When you read HARDER fact books, they have MORE GOOD FACTS in them. And this one is all about what animals do at NIGHT. And you know what? They DON’T just sleep. What they do is look for food, mainly, because it’s safer and also not that hot.
So here’s a really good fact. Did you know that FROGS eat FIREFLIES? And if those frogs eat too MANY fireflies, guess what? They start to GLOW. And that made me make up a joke. Why did the frog eat fireflies? Because he wanted a light meal! HA!
So there was even some stuff in here about foxes, and one pictures of this fox trying to eat a PORCUPINE. And it reminded me of this picture of these dogs I saw on Facebook, where they got lost and then they ran into a porcupine, and that porcupine gave both those doggies a face full of PRICKERS! Now the good news in this book is that that fox didn’t get nailed with prickers. But if it happens to dogs, then it’s gotta happen to foxes sometimes, too. So that fox should be happy.
And it also said that foxes come out in the day because they eat food people leave around. So maybe if we want to see some foxes we should try that.
This one has so many facts and good pictures about a lot of animals and it wasn’t too hard to read, but it was just right. And it made me think of a joke.
So it’s not just a good one. It’s one I need to read AGAIN.
Eva’s rating: ♥♥♥♥ (out of five)
