    If you wanted word bites on the interesting ways living things interrelate, how they color and feed and mate and grow, this is a book to pick up Read a section paragraph or a couple pages then go on to something else I suppose the goal is to get you so fascinated by something you read that you ll go looking forinformation On that level the book fails for me The material is interesting but hardlythan that.

    This book is almost thirty years old and it shows in the writing style and anthropocentrism I read it as part of a reading challenge and spent most of my time reading it wondering how much of the information is still considered accurate.

    Of Kinkajous, et al. by Jeanne K Hanson and Deane Morrison is full of curious facts about the natural world It s broken into short, disjoint, easy to read essays ranging in size from a paragraph to a few pages Many essays are accompanied by attractive pen and ink illustrations If you ve spent much time learning about nature, you ll likely find a lot of information that you already know things like cheetahs are the fastest land animal, sloths move slowly, and mosquitoes spread deadly diseas Of Kinkajous, et al. by Jeanne K Hanson and Deane Morrison is full of curious facts about the natural world It s broken into short, disjoint, easy to read essays ranging in size from a paragraph to a few pages Many essays are accompanied by attractive pen and ink illustrations If you ve spent much time learning about nature, you ll likely find a lot of information that you already know things like cheetahs are the fastest land animal, sloths move slowly, and mosquitoes spread deadly diseases But unless you are unusually well informed you ll probably learn some new things too.Because the essays are short and disjoint, the book has lots of convenient stopping places I used them frequently and took muchtime to get through this book than I typically spend on a book three times as long That s not all bad Disjoint information is probably assimilated best in small packages.Although this isn t really a reference book, its utility would be improved substantially by including an index

    This book is a series of short essays about the wonders of life on earth, focusing mostly on animals from the smallest virus to the largest whale The book is difficult to read for long periods of time due to the short chapters, however, it is perfect if you want a book to read when distractions are many and reading time is short Although people will inevitably be familiar with some of the facts presented, others will fascinate Unfortunately, it is evident that the book was written by two pe This book is a series of short essays about the wonders of life on earth, focusing mostly on animals from the smallest virus to the largest whale The book is difficult to read for long periods of time due to the short chapters, however, it is perfect if you want a book to read when distractions are many and reading time is short Although people will inevitably be familiar with some of the facts presented, others will fascinate Unfortunately, it is evident that the book was written by two people because some facts are repeated Too bad the editor didn t catch them Well worth reading

    I read this book as part of the Spring 2009 Challenge Read a book with 12 orwords in the title 25 points The copy I borrowed was not attractive However, I could see myself leaving this in a restroom for reading on the throne The factoids about the various flora fauna are brief and the right length for the Royal Reading Room.

    Haven t started yet but it is the subtitle, Of Kinkajous, Capybaras, Horned Beetles, Seladangs that caught me Especially the capybaras part.It s okay A bit repetitive and not descriptive enough to be really interesting but an okay book to pick up and read once in a while when you don t have anything better to do.

    Not bad, but it s another unorganized book with a paragraph to page about random odd animals and their random odd characteristics.
