#GIVEAWAY #MMBBR Review The Secret Loves of Animals by Stacy Tornio and Ken Keffer @stacytornio @TSR_Promos

The Secret Lives of Animals
The Secret Lives of Animals is the perfect mix of field guide know-how and armchair entertainment. In addition to the standard field guide notes and range maps, the meat of the book will offer up “spark moments” in nature—something fascinating or memorable that catches your attention and sets you on a path of lifelong learning. The Secret Lives of Animals will feature more than 100 North American animals and over 1,000 tidbits in a fun, colorful, illustrated format.

I cannot stop picking this book up and reading facts and looking at the pictures!  This book is a treasure trove of information!!!  There is so much to read and learn within this fabulous book!  My kids and I love reading animal facts!  I love how it is laid out and there are numbered facts on each animal.  This makes the book so much more reader friendly for children and adults too.  I also love the Go Outside tidbits!  They are just awesome!  It is really cool to see that there is a book like this out there because the sense of the wonder of the outdoor is being lost within technology and I think any kid that reads this book will want to get outside and explore nature in all it glory!  
 5 stars!!

PS: Did you now that slugs can lay 400 to 500 eggs in a single year!!! (P. 37, The Secret Loves of Animals). Crazy right???  Check out this book to learn more interesting and crazy animal facts!!!

Stacy Tornio is an Oklahoma girl at heart, though she’s lived in Wisconsin for the last 10 years. As editor of Birds & Blooms Magazine, Stacy is able to share her love of backyard nature. Her first book, Cathy’s Animal Garden, takes readers on a picture journey into the neighbor’s scary backyard in search of a homerun baseball. Project Garden, her recent book, is a monthly guide filled with activities to keep the whole family gardening all year long. Along with her husband, Steve, Stacy enjoys watching her two children explore nature in their Milwaukee backyard and on trips up north.
Ken Keffer was born and raised in Wyoming.  A vagabond naturalist, he’s done a little bit of everything, from monitoring mice and vole populations and picking up carnivore scat in Grand Teton National Park to researching flying squirrels in the Tongass National Forest of southeast Alaska, and monitoring Bactrian camels in Mongolia’s Great Gobi Strictly Protected Area. He’s also worked as an environmental educator in Wyoming, northern New Mexico, coastal Maryland, and along the shores of Lake Erie in Ohio. Ken enjoys birding, floating on lazy rivers, and fly fishing in the mountains out west.
