Creature or Critter?
About the Book
Animals and birds are an integral part of a child’s growing up. Identifying the varied species with a friendly approach is the author’s intent. Depicting each animal in a comical way makes the learning process easier. Enabling a child to laugh often stimulates the memory to grasp some small bits of information related to the subject. Describing these animals as the author does is meant to stimulate in just that way. He does not guarantee any scientific accuracy but hopes to make it enjoyable for children. The illustrations are done in such a way that they may be used not only for identification but allow the youngsters to use their imagination by using the illustrations as a coloring book.
