Summary: What can you think of that’s pink? I can name a few, but I bet you can’t name all of the creatures mentioned in this book! There is so much to know and this book has a lot to offer from its location to its predators and more.
Response: What factual information did you learn? Did anything surprise you? How do you know if this information is accurate?
I learned that there are more pink animals other than a flamingo! The book was full of fun and interesting facts. The book overall surprised me with the variety of facts and ways of displaying them across the page. There is a realistic image, cartoon image, a side bar with the Latin name, its size, diet, etc. I did know some of the facts in the book, so I would assume that the rest of it is accurate as well. There are associations mentioned and references to check the facts as well.
