Book review – Animals eating

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome photos!! April 21, 2012

Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified PurchaseThe monkey eating fruit on the front cover caught my eye — as I love monkeys! (duh– I’m monkeelv). The author has a very well put together book! It has an interactive Table of Contents linking to each individual animal. At first I thought a TOC wasn’t really needed, but later when wanting to show the mole eating a worm to my husband (LOL) I found it quickly! The animals shown eating something are a sheep, rabbit, prairie dog, monkey, macaw, woodpecker, mole, otter, spider, frog, lizard, and sparrow. The photos are awesome closeups of the animal in action! My grandson is going to love this book when he is just a little bit older and can recognize the animals and their “food.” The author indicated the book is for children ages 2-7. I enjoyed it, too!

Everything is uniformly written; punctuation is perfect! The author includes an “About the Author” section in the back of the book. She has both the knowledge, education, and photography skills to have created this book. She also includes at the end of the book, links to the other books she has also written for children. If all of her books are of this quality and are as interesting as this one, I likely will be purchasing them in the future!

The book displayed perfectly on an iPad. On the Kindle Fire, the pages are just a little bit narrower, and so the last letter on grasshopper, the ‘r”, went on the next line. The pictures have a colored border around them. Also on the Fire, The far right border on the horizontal photos did not show; the entire photo was there, just the border was missing — and it really didn’t matter. This is one of the best books I have read/seen!

  1. Hi Kimberley,
    Love your books, and I look forward to seeing your posts. I have just purchased ‘Cute Animals,’ and am looking forward to the read. I would like to highlight you books on my blog page in the near future. I do hope that you are OK with that.
    I am a middle grade author, and I focus on including information about endangered animals into my epic adventures. My first tale has just been released, and I am very excited about it.
    My very best to you, and thank you so much for your time, talent and dedication to children’s education.

    • Hi Jeanne. Thanks so much and I am definitely ok with that. The First animals books are really just photos for babies to look at – something for a parent to put on the kindle to keep a baby entertained while they are waiting in a queue.

      • Yes, they are wonderful. I also have Animals Eating, and own and read Cross Country Capers. So good of you to teach as you write. My first book has just released on Amazon, and I am excited about that. In a week or two I will be able to post about your books. Would you mind sending me a short paragraph/ bio so I get some details correct in my post? Thanks.
        Cheers!

      • Hi Jeanne

        Congratulations on the release of your book. I wish you every success with it.

        Here is a short biography. There is a longer one on my web site and on Amazon Author Central:

        Kimberley Jane Pryor is an Australian author of children’s books. She has had 63 books published and has self-published 39 ebooks via Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing. She mostly writes about animals because she is fascinated by animal behaviour. When she is not writing, she is out taking photos of birds. On holidays, she loves scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef.

        Thanks again

        Kim

      • Thanks, Kimberley. I will let you know in advance of my post. I would really appreciate it if you would send out my book title to your followers. That would be great! And again, thank you so much for your time and talent. Jeanne
