High Rotation Reads - Nov 6th through 12th
I don't know how many books Jill Morris and Lynne Muir have author/illustrated together. I am aware of two, the other was about Australian Owls, and both have been highly enjoyed around here.
As with the other, Magnificent Macropods is beautifully illustrated and full of facts with a one page write up on each animal. What I like with this series compared to many non fiction books is that it doesn't take any adaption for those will shorter attention spans as each animal has rhyming verse that points to an interesting fact about the animal being highlighted. Little Tree also really enjoys the last pages where the relative animal size is drawn smallest to largest to try and give some real world perspective.
