Book review: Zoo 3D- An Incredible Animal Adventure

My kids have been getting up close to some animals lately. Not at the zoo or the aquarium, but right in our home, thanks to the arrival of a cool new 3D book from TIME for Kids, called Zoo 3D: An Incredible Animal Adventure. Here's a bit about this book:

Brought to you by the editors of TIME For Kids magazine, this book of stunning 3D photos shows animals as you've never seen them outside of a zoo. From big cats to exotic birds, the creatures seem to leap, crawl, fly, slither, swim, and stampede off the pages and into your living room. The book is packed with close to 100 large-scale, state-of-the art photos taken by master 3D photographer, David Klutho.

Ethan and Vivian have been having a blast going through the book and trying to touch all the animal pictures as they popped off the page. There's a really nice assortment of pictures of animals and birds of all different types. It's a fun way to teach kids about different animals. As a person who is hugely afraid of snakes (yes, even pictures), I appreciated that there were only a couple of small pictures of those. I don't think I could have handled 3D snake pictures :)  I also appreciated that the book comes with two pairs of 3D glasses, so both of my kids can look at the book at the same time.  
If you have an animal lover in your house, definitely check out this book. It's lots of fun!
