September 12, 2017

Illustrations/Photos (if applicable)
Beginning readers can go through many books, and it's good to find ones on a variety of topics. Young readers who enjoy animals will find the descriptions of the animals to be amusing, especially the pangolin's habit of releasing smelly gas when it is threatened. The additional descriptions at the end of the book might spark more research, particularly about the natural habitats of the animals depicted.
The full color illustrations are quirky and funny, and the ratio of text to illustration is similar to the page set up of I Can Read or Step Into Reading books. The story lines about sharing and understanding the background and motivation of others are timely and important, and the humor of Bismark and his antics will draw young readers into the story.
