My kids’ latest fascination is with—of all things— vultures.
We’re driving down the street and pass some innocent-looking bird standing on the side of the road. Immediately, the back seat of the car erupts in a heated discussion.
“That’s a vulture! I’m telling you, that’s a vulture!” my son says excitedly.
“No, it’s a crow,” insists my daughter.
“But just look at its beak and those mean eyes—it has to be a vulture!”
A third child pipes up, “I think it’s a turkey.”
Me? I just hide my grin and continue driving along, grateful for the free entertainment and conversation piece that that bird has just provided us with. After all, discussing whether the bird is a vulture or not is a lot better than some of the other squabbles known to have gone on in this car…
As a general rule, most kids are enthralled by the creatures living around them. Cats, dogs, worms, birds (can’t forget those vultures!)—the sight of them alone can easily provide hours of entertainment for a child. And if you expand your child’s horizons a bit more and take him to the zoo—well, what better thing could you have done for him? Elephants, lions, zebras, flamingos, ostriches…most children could spend an entire week just feasting their eyes on these creatures!
With this in mind, Israel Bookshop proudly presents yet another book in Efraim Harari’s wildly popular Exploring series. This one is called Exploring the Wild World of Animals and Birds. Besides for including a brand new slew of animals, none of which were discussed in any of Harari’s other books, an array of fascinating birds is showcased, as well. Take the gorgeous flamingo, or the intelligent parrot, or the majestic eagle, and the owl, and the crane…believe me when I tell you that you and your child will be absolutely glued to this amazing book, with the wealth of information and stunning pictures that it contains.
So, if you’re looking for that perfect Chanukah gift for someone who’s fascinated by Hashem’s creations, whether child or adult (don’t think we didn’t catch you poring over your kid’s Exploring the Wild World of Animals book after he’d gone to sleep…), you’ll definitely want to consider Exploring the Wild World of Animals and Birds!
