Passport Into the Wild

Passport Into the Wild
by Jack Hanna (4/5 stars)
Reading level: Ages 9-12
Hardcover: 72 pages
Publisher: Thomas Nelson (September 30, 2008)

This book has the reader "travel with" Jungle Jack across the seven continents as he shares adventures and photos. It comes with a "passport" and stickers that are to be used at the end of "exploring" each continent, along with questions to answer and stir up young minds.

Each continent is given a fact page, and four pages of photos with notes, the center of which fold out into 40-inch wide double pages. The photos are bright and fascinating and the information, while sometimes seeming basic, is still quite interesting. It is a book that a child will return to again and again through-out several years.

My only complaint is that is so very short. Other than that, it is a lovely book and can be very educational while still being entertaining. It would make a wonderful gift for children interested in animals.

Thanks to Amazon for this Amazon Vine book to review.
