For the love of animals and Giveaway

animal antics book
We love watching different types of birds come to our garden. Over the years, we invested in adding features to attract birds and other pollinators from bird feeders, pond, water features, bee hotels, bird houses, and more. We find it exciting to observe the birds, and have been reading books such as DK Canada's fully updated 2nd edition Pocket Birds of Canada to identify the types of birds that visit our garden.

This compact easy to use book features 435 species of birds found in Canada. We love that the size of this book doesn't compromise in its quality. The half or full page profile features high-quality, close-up annotated photographs of each bird, showing differences between males and females or juveniles and adults, along with range maps and descriptive text explaining key information to aid in identification. There are details on voice, nesting and feeding habits, and preferred habitats.

It Can't Be True! Animals! is a book that will be loved by animal lovers of all ages. This entertaining wacky book is packed with hundreds of mind-blowing visual comparisons and astonishing facts. Every page reveals incredible information about the wonderful world of animals. There are facts about a variety of different animals, invertebrates, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. The content of this book is separated five sections: skills and senses, unbelievable bodies, strength and speed, homes and hideaways, and growing and breeding. We learned about a lot of animals we haven't heard of.
  • Did you know a woodpeckers long tongue wraps protectively inside its skull during pecking and can be extended to catch insects inside the tree?
  • Some birds can sleep during flight by keeping one eye open and half their brain awake. An Alpine swift adopts this method to stay airborne for up to 200 days at a time. 
This awesome book is filled with record-breaking facts, amazing stories, stunning photos and illustrations to show the readers what the numbers mean, comparing the extraordinary with the familiar, which makes it easy to fathom.
