    As I read this book I just got more and more amazed . I certainly would have thought hippos can swim !and !!hummingbirds can hover in mid air by rapidly talking their wings 12 to 80 times per second!!!they MUST be tired. I thought this was a pretty awesome book!I recommend this book to all ages and I rate this book 3/5 stars 😁 - Pizzagirl7 😁

      Did you know a sea turtle can swim up to 35 Mph (miles per hour) ! And zebras may seem the same but no two zebras look alike - just like humans!! The rest of the facts in here are just as good as these. This would be a great book to read to younger siblings! Thanks for reading -Ajg16's reviews
