Summary

Have you been looking for a fun educational book that brings life to some of the hidden animals of our deserts, one that the whole family can enjoy and play along with?

Well, you have finally found it!

Every year, our deserts are growing hotter and hotter due to global climate change. This brings many challenges to the animals of our deserts, but luckily, they have found a solution for survival! From extra water storage, giant ears for cooling, or microscopic silver hairs used to repel the heat, these animals are always adapting and changing to the environmental shifts caused by the human race over many years.

Did you know that the burrow of a Mojave tortoise can reach lengths of 33 feet and width of three feet?

This world is bigger then you may think, so come with me and lets explore!

In this book, you will learn about the unique animals and some of the fascinating traits they have gained to battle the sweltering heat, like the:

  • Mojovi desert tortoise
  • The tiny but mighty silver ant
  • The unique traveling sidewinder rattlesnake
  • The nine-foot high jumping kangaroo rat
  • And one of most well-known desert animal, the camel
  • And much more...

So, if you are looking to pass time and want to learn about some of the animals in the desert and their abilities to thrive in one of the harshest and most unforgiving habitats on earth, then scroll up and buy now.

Entertaining listen...

I've listened to a few of C.S. Alexander's audiobooks and this one delivered yet again. They are entertaining, educational, but also not too long (great for the young ones with short attention spans!). Keeping a keen eye out for the next one...

Great addition to children’s resources

This was a fun and fascinating listen. Please to add to the collection of resources for those long car rides. I enjoyed it too. Who knew that some lizards do two heads, a real one and a decoy head. A fun easy listen.

Fun, quick listen!

What a fun book! It delivers on its promise and you’ll find any road trip will be more enlightening with a ton of interesting animal facts. Too many facts to choose from, but one that stuck with me was about a beetle that can collect moisture from the air and drip it into its mouth. Wild stuff :) I think this would be perfect for a road trip or to listen to with your kids. I’d highly recommend!

Fun and great infos

I really enjoyed listening to these facts. Most of them were mind blowing! There were lots of information about animals I did not know about. I wish the author could make another series with more and more contents. Loove it!!
These are really interesting for kids and adults as well. Before planning a journey to the Zoo or natural reserve or a safari, It is also interesting to make everyone listen to the audio !!

Super interesting and engaging!

I absolutely loved these fun facts. It wasn't overly "factual", but flowed and held my interest very well. I learned some awesome information about desert animals and will be sure to drop a new found fun fact here and there with my friends and family to show off my new knowledge!

Interesting and fun book for kids

Author collected a lot of very interesting and fun facts about desert animals. I bought this audiobook to survive road trips with my children in the back. This book really served my purpose and, moreover, I also enjoyed listening to some facts I have never heard before.
