I really enjoy reading to my kids and love when I see the excitement on their face when a new book is introduced to them. What keeps things fun and exciting is with technology we are able to have a bigger collection of books. The traditional ones we can hold and read and then having e-books on our tablets, phones, kindles, ipads etc. It’s wonderful to have all these options.

My children love reading and finding out new things all the time. With so many kids it can be a big task keeping fun and different books in the house all the time. I was pleased to find out I’d be getting the opportunity to review Amazing Facts About Penguins by Dan Jackson and even more delighted that the Author is giving one of my lucky readers a copy for free (enter the giveaway below).
My children seem to really love having the versatility of e-books. They love being able to purchase them in the comfort of our own home. The fact that the e-books are usually more cost effective means the kiddos are able to get more books for less money. Win, win for all of us 🙂
The first thing the kids and I noticed about Amazing Facts About Penguins, were the brilliant pictures. The brightness and the colors are amazing. The second thing was the intelligent writing of the book. The author is able to convey the information without talking down to the kids. I thought the book really makes the reader think and uses a higher level of vocabulary, while at the same time not isolating the younger reader.
I’ve read other “facts” books for kids and thought I didn’t really learn anything new. Or the only one learning something new would be the toddler or preschoolers. Dan Jackson shares so many interesting things in the Amazing Facts about Penguins.
My 8 year old is just mesmerized by the book and keeps reading it. He thinks it is so interesting to learn all these things he use to think about penguins aren’t even true. After he got done reading it the first time he said “mom, Amazing Facts About Penguins isn’t just the name of the book, there really are amazing things about penguins”.
Dan Jackson was even able to get my 11 year old intrigued by all the new and fun things he learned about Penguins. There are so many age levels this e-book can be for. My toddler loves seeing the Penguins in their habitat and the pictures keep her interested. Having this book on my phone or on the tablet makes for great distraction when we are out and about.
We are so fortunate the Author is giving away a free download of Amazing Facts About Penguins to one of my sweet readers!
If you can’t wait to get your hands on this book you can head to Amazon and purchase it here.
