Take Me Home: Waters of the World
by Pavla Hanackova, Linh Dao (Illustrator)
4 out of 5 stars
Annie discovers several animals washed up on a beach and determines to help them find their homes again. The penguin returns to the polar sea, and the alligator returns to the wetland swamp, a piranha find his home in the Amazon river, and a little frog goes hopping into a lake.
This book includes factoids about all the types of bodies of water from rivers to coral reefs. It has illustrations showing amazing animals and fish that live in each location. We learn about all the weird and wild fish in the sea, and how they use disguises to fool their predators. We learn about the deepest lakes, the coldest seas, and all the cool oceans in between.
I really liked the illustrations. The art style is soft and cartoony, and all the little animals are so cute! Each scene has dozens of animals and plants in the background, and they are all labeled so you can learn about them.
The pages of this book are thick, but not so thick as a board book. I like that the factoids are presented in little boxes around the page, making it easy to read.
