Animal Eyes - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
The sense of sight helps an animal stay safe from predators, find food and shelter, defend its territory and care for its young. We can tell a lot about an animal from its eyes: whether it is predator or prey, whether it is more active during the day or night, and sometimes even its gender or age. Award-winning nature photographer and environmental educator Mary Holland shares fascinating animal eyes with readers of all ages.
 
My Review:
 
With realistic photos of what eyes look like from a variance of animals, Animal Eyes educates young readers on the function of eyes and how they benefit different animals.  For instance, readers learn that a coyote's eyes are located in the front of its head because it is a predator.  Other animals and critters featured include hawks, dragonflies, snakes, and more. 
 
The 'For Creative Minds' section in the back of the book further educates and gets children excited to know more about eyes.  There's Animal Vision Fun Facts, a vision glossary, and a matching game.
 
Animal Eyes is a January 2015 release by Arbordale Publishing.

Win It!
 
One person will win a book copy of Animal Eyes.
