Animal Partners - 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.

From the “crocodile’s dentist,” to the “mongoose spa,” Animal Partners takes a whimsical look at symbiotic relationships of animals large and small. Although many animals live in groups of the same kind, here you will learn how some animals form unique partnerships with different species. After all, don’t we all need a little help from our friends?
My Review:
 
Told in rhythmical form, Animal Partners is a delightful book that shows the symbiotic relationships within the animal species.  Some of the partnerships are shown of animals helping and depending on each other and some show how one animal wins in a relationship by hurting another animal.  This is a book where children may not know right off hand what kind of animal partnership is being shown, but a further discussion after the reading will help them register and get the idea.  The "For Creative Minds" section in the back of the book is one area that helps children decipher because it explains the difference between "win-win", "win-stay the same" and "win-lose" relationships between animals.  There's also a couple of fun matching exercises where readers can match animal partners and animal habitats.
 
Animal Partners is a 2015 release by Arbordale Publishing.
 
Win It!

One person will win a book copy of Animal Partners.
