Review: Never Say BOO to a Frilly by Margot Finke

Margot Finke has crafted some clever and fun books to help kids (and grownups) learn about the amazingly diverse fauna of Australia. Native to Australia, Ms. Finke's tales are full of facts, rhyme and new words to learn. So, children not only will learn about these animals in an entertaining way, but also they will build up their literacy and vocabulary skills. That is a win-win!
The illustrations are colorful, detailed, yet artistic and will aid in keeping the young ones focused. I really enjoyed the landscape paintings and especially the ones with the birds.
Never Say BOO to a Frilly is a fantastic book, to keep the ones in the house busy reading and learning. I might self learned a few facts about these fascinating creatures. I give it five stars!
