    Animals That Make Me Say Wow!- Dawn Cusick 1. The twin text I selected for this book was If All the Animals Came Inside by Eric Pinder, copyright 2012. 2. If All the Animals Came Inside was an enjoyable book to pair with Animals That Make Me Say Wow! because it put a fun twist on imagining all kinds of animals interacting with us in our daily lives. While Animals That Make Me Say Wow! gives specific details and interesting facts about many different kinds of animals, the book If All the Animals Ca Animals That Make Me Say Wow!- Dawn Cusick 1. The twin text I selected for this book was If All the Animals Came Inside by Eric Pinder, copyright 2012. 2. If All the Animals Came Inside was an enjoyable book to pair with Animals That Make Me Say Wow! because it put a fun twist on imagining all kinds of animals interacting with us in our daily lives. While Animals That Make Me Say Wow! gives specific details and interesting facts about many different kinds of animals, the book If All the Animals Came Inside used characteristics about those animals and used them in silly situations. I believe students would love the match of humor with real life details they have learned about animals. 3. Description was the text structure used in Animals That Make Me Say Wow! The book had three main categories: defense, foraging, and anatomy. 4. For these books I would incorporate the Venn diagram strategy with my students. Students would be able to compare and contrast what qualities of animals the nonfiction story mentioned vs. the qualities that the picture book mention and see if they are similar or different, factual or fictitious.

So many animals are highlighted for their unique skills or habits. There are three major sections that categorize the animals that are highlighted in this book. This first section deals with amazing defensive abilities of animals. The second is all about how animals find their food (foraging). The third and last section is about unique anatomy of animals. There are plenty of examples (almost an exhaustive amount), but there is a lot of potential and fun with a book like this. I liked the pictures of the animals, particularly the ones that are needed for visual reference. They are colorful, large enough to see all the necessary details, and they make the book intriguing, rather than a big block of text. Visual learners would be able to use the pictures for a lot of things, beyond just synthesizing information. The pictures could lead to research for older learners about the particular unique attributes being described, or, for younger learners, the pictures would encourage them to draw their own. Younger learners could also relate the animals to their environments, or even write stories about the animals. Without pictures, it’s hard to visualize what’s being highlighted in the book. In this case, pictures are essential for the success of the book and the highest level of comprehension of the material present. I also really liked the diversity of animals included in this book. There are animals from all sorts of environments, such as the sea, the tundra, or even the forest. The choice to split the book into three major sections was a great idea, and it even might inspire an activity that requires students to create their own groups of animals (either from their imagination of from the animals that are discussed in the book). This book, as I mentioned, has a lot of potential for classroom use, and that’s primarily why I gave it 5 stars in my rating. I really appreciate the existence of books like this, because they make nonfiction entertaining, to some extent. They also provide a great set of visual references for students, and that’s invaluable both for learning experiences and teacher’s planning processes.
