How can you use Odd Animal ABC's in the classroom?

Odd Animal ABC's contains 53 animals (and one imaginary unicorn). All 53 of these animals, both classic and odd, are real live animals. 

  • Children can choose an animal and research one interesting fact, like wombat poop is square (yes, that's in the book!)
  • Children can do research and discover other real odd animals like the binturong or the pangolin.
  • Some of the odd animals, and some of the classics, are endangered. Children can come up with ways to help protect these amazing animals.
