Actual Size - Jenkins

Actual Size by Steve Jenkins is an awesome book! I got it at Kohls a few weeks ago, it was a part of their Kohls Cares for Kids program but from the previous promotion so it was discounted - I got it for $2.50! What a steal too, this book is well worth it. As the name aptly puts it, everything in the book is actual size, from the Gorilla's hand to the tiny Goby Fish this book has done a great job helping kids to understand how big or small some animals really are. Every picture is a picture of his paper art and has wonderful details. My kids love putting their faces next to the Alaskan Brown Bear or their hands on the Goliath Tarantula. In the back section of the book there is information and a full picture of all the animals shown in the book.

Love this book and highly recommend it!
