This book describes without going into lengthy details interesting and fascinating facts individually with illustrations about a variety of animals.
Children invariably show keen interest in anything strange and fascinating. Very few of us are aware of the enormous diversity of the plant and animals life around us, the innumerable fascinating facts about animals – what ingenious method they adopt to get their food, what strange and beautiful homes they build without any instruction or learning, how they court and breed, how some of them take care of their young, what extraordinary senses some of them possess, what strange tactics they adopt to protect themselves from their enemies and predators, unbelievable relationships they strike with one another for mutual benefit, social behavior of the highest order exhibited by some, uncanny migrations over thousands of miles by many birds and some fishes, and numerous other behavioral oddities.
This book will capture the imagination of children and create an awareness in them to strive to protect all animals and plants so as to allow these to share our planet not only with us but the future generations as well.
