IP Factly's 101 Facts series has been designed to encourage and bolster independent reading by whetting the appetite of young learners. It provides short, snappy facts that spark the interest of inquisitive kids.
Desert animal books for kids - a fun and fascinating way for young readers to find out more about these well adapted creatures.
This desert animals book for kids mixes facts, photos and even includes a video clip section.

Accompanying webpage with video clips


This book provides fact after fact for information hungry children to tell family and friends, and even has an accompanying webpage with video clips of the many of the different species in the book.
The videos are split into animal species to further encourage independent reading and learning.
It makes learning fun and gives a real reason for children to want to read by themselves. Kids will love discovering animal facts to share and enjoy.
The video links mean children come back again and again, naturally developing their reading and learning skills (early kindle models don't support video but the safe website link is given).

Fascinating Facts Include...


* The greater roadrunner is also known as the snake killer because it can kill small snakes with one blow from its beak or larger snakes by beating them against rocks.
* The flat-headed frog is another expert at storing water. It can store so much water, in fact, that it ends up bloated and shaped like a ball, with only its head staying flat.
* The desert cockroach is found in the Colorado Desert. It is able to absorb water vapor from the atmosphere, sometimes absorbing so much that it gains weight.
* In spite of their name, desert night lizards are active during the day. They are the only lizards to form social groups, with the young lizards staying with their parents for years.
* The desert death adder can go without food for days, lying in patient ambush. When prey comes close, it wiggles the tip of its tail, making it look like a worm, and bringing the prey within striking distance.

5.0 out of 5 stars 101 Facts about Desert Animals, Review 21 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Entertaining and informative, the great thing about this book is that the facts are presented in short paragraphs so that even small children reading it cannot be overwhelmed by the considerable content. Clearly written and well illustrated. I learned a great deal that I did not know before.

Highly recommended for children of all ages!

5.0 out of 5 stars Birds, snakes, spiders, mammals and more! 11 Aug. 2014

Did you know that one third of the world's land surface is desert! (Both hot and cold.) The driest place in the world is the Atacama Desert. Most desert animals are crepuscular or nocturnal.

Don't think that frogs and toads can live in the desert? Wrong! See which ones can in this book. What about a turtle that can survive for over a year without drinking?

Video links are available at the end of each section with a full list of links provided at the end.

The desert is indeed a hostile place for most living creatures, but there are highly-developed animals that are capable of surviving in the harsh desert environment. I've shared this book with my kids because I've noticed that they are quite fascinated with life on the deserts. I could always imagine my son's chuckle when he told his friends that a desert night lizard is not nocturnal, but rather diurnal.
