And that's just the tip of the dung pile! These yucky habits may seem surprising to us, but they're totally normal for these animals. In fact, their survival depends on them. Snappy text, incredible photography, and more cool features add to the learning fun. Ready to chew some fingernails with cockroaches? Dive into the disgusting world of animals!

National Geographic Kids is always sure to be a winner at my house. Their newest release has been deemed the favorite by my (almost) ten year old. ICK! Delightfully Disgusting Animal Dinners, Dwellings, and Defenses is as gross as its title suggests. Divided into three sections, the book presents interesting facts about animals and insects across the world, a few you may find in your own back yard. Full color photographs matched with boldly colored illustrations and typography make this an eye-catching read. We've spent hours looking through the pictures, and my son has happily told his friends and family members some of the new, and super-gross, facts he's learned. ICK! will make a great addition to your home or classroom library.
Good Points
-Full color photographs mixed with colorful illustrations and typography make this an eye-pleasing read
-Interesting and gross facts equals a fun-learning experience
