Go Wild with DK Canada Books!


Animals. We all have a soft spot for one or many different types of two, four or multi-legged creatures that inhabit our world. My kids are always curious to learn more about their favourite animals and find out about others they discover. DK Canada wants everyone to enjoy learning about animals and asked me to choose some books to allow us to get wild about the animal kingdom.

Below are the three books my family received to read and enjoy:

Sharks and Other Deadly Ocean Creatures: Visual Encyclopedia

The world’s oceans and seas are filled with countless wonders. Some of these beings can also prove to be powerful predators, which makes them so captivating. Sharks and Other Deadly Ocean Creatures: Visual Encyclopedia highlights many of these animals for kids to learn and become fascinated about.

My kids loved learning about all of the different types of powerful sea creatures, but they were fixated on one of the most popular sharks out there: The Great White Shark.  They loved learning about why Great White Sharks look the way they do, why they live in the upper layers of the ocean and how powerful these giant creatures could be.

The Horse Encyclopedia

Regal. Powerful. Loyal. These are just a few words used when people think of horses. Since I have loved horses from a young age, I had to get The Horse Encyclopedia book to learn more about these animals with big personalities. This title details the characteristics and origins of each bread of horse, as well as sharing information about some of the most famous horses in the history of this animal. This encyclopedia also talks about how horses have fit into living with humans throughout various aspects of history.

This title was such a wonderful read! Each horse was beautiful to look at, but I had fell in love with the Connemara. Being able to learn about this horse’s background, how it has been bread with other horses to create new breeds of horses and why it is such a great performance horse are what made this book such a good read.

After learning about all of these animals, I knew that my kids were going to ask to read about more beings around the world. That is why I chose to have Animal to read with my kids. This book shares many details about animals found around the world, from mammals and birds to reptiles and fish and beyond!

Once of the great reasons why this book is such a page turner in our home is how the information is laid out about each animal. One of our favourite to flip over to was the penguin. My kids and I really liked to read about the different varieties of penguins. It was also interesting to learn out about the various different locations penguins can be found and how different they can be from different penguins around the world.

My family went wild with these books from DK Canada. We learned so much about some of our favourite animals as well as discovering breeds and animals we had never heard about before. The way the information was laid out for readers to take in made reading each title very enjoyable. The photos in every book were all breathtaking, making turning each page a feast for the eyes. These three titles are fun reads that we will love going through for many years to come.
