Tughra Books announces two new titles for children this fall as part of its Amazing Animals series geared toward 7-9 year olds. Innovative in style and educational in content, Giants of the World and Wonders of the Land emphasize respect and appreciation of the diversity of life in the world. The animals included in these two books talk about themselves in an entertaining manner that has great appeal to children. For each animal in the book, an identity card is provided summarizing key facts about the kind such as size, weight, and geographic location.
Giants of the World focuses on the animals large in size. Kangaroos, ostriches, elephants, pandas, and crocodiles are among the thirteen animals explored in the book. The secrets behind polar bears' below-ground snow shelters, how a whale feeds her baby under the sea, and the symbiotic relationship rhinos have with birds are revealed as animals "narrate" their own story.
Wonders of the Land illustrates the divine glory of the universe exploring extraordinary abilities and adaptations of twelve land animals, including a fox, turtle, camel, and chameleon. Animals talk about their particular survival tactics and special skills and explain how they enjoy social and familial interactions similar to humans. Children will be delighted to discover that termites build skyscrapers, spiders hunt with lassos, goats can forecast the weather, and elephants can communicate across long distances.
Both books are beautifully illustrated by Oznur Kalender, a veteran artist who illustrated for more than 50 books for children. His illustrations bring life and joy to the conversation each animal conducts with the readers. Families and teachers alike will find these two books a great way to educate kids about the animal world and the diversity of life in our universe.
