#currentlyreading : Where The Animals Go . I have always had an interest in animals and animal facts. (A month or so ago I shared a fun information book called “Natural Attraction” by Iris Gottlieb about different relationships between different animals and creatures, which I very much recommend) I enjoy leafing through these kinds of books and reading a bit here and there before moving on to something else. . However, I have found that “Where The Animals Go” is really difficult for me to put down. I’ve been reading it straight through like a regular novel. This book is absolutely fascinating. By putting trackers on animals, James Cheshire and Oliver Uberyi began following animals on their regular paths— and the kinds of information that they discovered about each animal is pretty incredible. . Migration patterns, learning how to aid their survival, discovering that elephants were adapting to a nocturnal lifestyle to avoid poachers, declaring sharks innocent of deaths at sea… I mean, this stuff is super interesting. You might think the writing in something like this to be tedious, but it flows easily and feels just like reading any novel. Then, after reading each story, there is an accompanying map or chart with the information you’ve just read on it (making it easy to follow and sharpen the picture in your mind from the reading) . If you’re into this kind of thing like I am, I highly recommend this book. Just super interesting stuff that makes you realize just how smart and fascinating animals really are. . Do you have a favorite animal? I did a report on elephants in the fourth grade (where we were sent to the Discovery Room in the library at school to look up information in actual encyclopedias. Not a computer in sight. haha) and ever since then I’ve been quite partial to them. #wheretheanimalsgo #maps #nationalgeographic #jamescheshire #oliveruberti
