Curious Critters by David FitzSimmons. Wow...the photography in this book is stunning, and it captures the attention of both children and adults!
Unlike many books of this nature, Curious Critters doesn't focus on exotic animals that are hard to find, and are only in other countries. No, instead David FitzSimmons has chosen to photograph common animals...the kinds of critters that we'll find in our own backyard. A few examples are the Bluejay, a spotted salamander and a toad. Another aspect of the book that we truly enjoyed was that the author allows each of the animals' "personalities" to make an appearance. It is written as if each animal is talking to you...and even interacting with the animals on other pages of the book! Very fun and attention grabbing!
Curious Critters is both simple, yet stunning. Instead of busy, color-filled pages, the white backgrounds with some of nature's great critters proudly displayed on each page really is fabulous. Curious Critters is both entertaining but also educational and we love it!
