Naturally Wild Musicians by Peter Christie

Stars: ****

I was sent this book to review by Annick Press.

It is a short children’s non-fiction book about the songs that animals sing. I was surprised to find out fruit flies, damselfish, mice and moths “sing” The book is divided into the ways music/song is used in animal kingdom such as recognition of family, attracting a mate, scaring away predators etc…. Colour photos are a great touch.

Only problem is I found it hard to follow. Main text plus photo captions plus side bars made me keep going back and forth between them all without fully reading any of them. That’s just something about me, I can’t seem to help jumping all over the place which is why I do better with books that are two full pages only.
