Wandering Woolly - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Arbordale Publishing.  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.

Little Woolly leaves her mother behind as she chases a toad down to the river. When the glacial ice breaks, she is swept away in the rumbling, rolling water. Now alone, the mammoth calf struggles to survive. She must sneak past cave lions, bears, saber-toothed cats and humans. Exhausted and afraid, she must even hide from stormy weather as she fights her way back to her herd. How can she find them? Will she ever get back?

My Review:

A book featuring extinct animals, Wandering Woolly tells of a baby mammoth who wondered about the world beyond its mother's safety.  Little Woolly gets thrown into rolling waters and wanders downstream, noticing other animals and humans along the way.  Eventually, Little Woolly finds herself back to her mama. 

This is a good book to discuss extinct animals and how they lived during their time.  The "For Creative Minds" section in the back of the book is very informative and educational, going over mammoths and elephants, Ice Age sequencing, Clovis People, and extinct Ice Age animals.
Win It!

One person will win a book copy of Wandering Woolly.

I also love Little House on the Prairie so that era is interesting to me. I also would have loved to have been here when Jesus was here on earth, I know I'll see Him someday. Thank you for the chance :)
