50 Reasons to Love Animals

50 Reasons to Love Animals is a fun picture book for kids (and their adult facilitators, teachers, parents, caregivers, etc) with animal facts and information. Due out 7th April 2020 from Quarto on their Frances Lincoln imprint, it's 40 pages and will be available in hardcover format.

This is an appealing book. The text, by Catherine Barr, is age-appropriate, accessible, science based and full of interesting facts about different ecosystems and the animals which call them home. Many of the pages contain small medallions ("show your love") with activities and suggestions for readers to become more engaged and aware of the animals and the difficulties they face. The art, by Hanako Clulow, is appealing and colorful.

This would make a superlative selection for a classroom unit, library read, or child's home library. The art is detailed enough that it would be a nice read-to-me book for even the youngest readers to enjoy hunting and finding animals or features.

Five stars. Well done.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes
