A Non-Fiction Winner

   I have to admit I am not really “into” non-fiction. Unless it’s something I am interested in or doing research on, it really takes a lot to get me reading a non-fiction title from cover to cover. Even children’s non-fiction can be hard for me to read every page of. So when I find one that I love…I get excited.  Albino Animals by Kelly Milner Halls is a book I got excited about. It’s not a new book but it was “new to me” when our library recieved a new copy. Not only is it intriguing but once you pick it up you can’t put it down. The pictures are amazing as is the subject matter. I learned things that I had never known…like how albino snakes can get burnt by the sun as can albino crocodiles. (This is of course a tricky problem since reptiles use the sun to regulate their body temperature. ) Lots of interesting facts and a great layout make this book a sure fire display book that will fly off your shelf. Kids and adults will find themselves reading and isn’t that the point of it all?

  1. Hey, thanks for your kind words about ALBINO ANIMALS. It was such a joy to research and write — like a treasure hunt. So I’m delighted you enjoyed it. And you “get” why I wrote it. I wrote it for people who need a little extra zip to enjoy nonfiction. Anyway, you really made my day, so thanks!

    Best wishes,
