What did you like about the book? Both the illustrations and the text in this book are sophisticated. Children will learn facts along with more advanced vocabulary. Drowsy, muted, wobble are some of the words the children will hear. The book tells the story of Emu on one page, and on the opposite page, in different font, the author gives facts about the emu.

To whom would you recommend this book? Children in first and second grade will like this book.

Who should buy this book? All libraries

Where would you shelve it and why? Nature

Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? Yes.
