“In addition to the fascinating trivia, this title contains a chart comparing animals heart rates (bpm) and their average life span (years). Wonderful for higher level thinking and using math, logic, and reasoning. This would be a perfect page to display . . . and ask the class to discuss the results. Want to know why royalty were called blue-bloods? I know after reading this title.”
