Review! Rascally Rabbits! by Aline Alexander Newman

rabitsNational Geographic Kids Chapters: Rascally Rabbits!: And More True Stories of Animals Behaving Badly

Written by Aline Alexander Newman

112 pages – ages 7+

Synopsis- Bunnies are cute right? But what if all they do is get in trouble? Dogs are fun friends – until they eat  everything in sight! When going camping, it’s always nice to have a nice, secure, bear-tested food can. But what if the bears can open the “bear-proof” can? Read about four animals that get into trouble in this book!

What I Thought- This was a collection of short, funny, and true stories. I like that the book is written for younger readers branching out – with hard-to-pronounce words having a quick guide in parentheses (sounds like Puh-REN-thuh-SEAS). There are some “Did You Know?” boxes scattered throughout the stories, and some more in-depth fact boxes as well. Ms. Newman includes pictures of the animals she wrote about. Young kids will like these stories, and the fact that they are organized into chapters. The National Geographic Kids series are colorful, organized in an interesting way and written to engage kids. They are a great way to get kids interested in non-fiction.

I give this book five out of five bookworms.fivebooks

  1. This sounds great (though I was hoping the ENTIRE book was about wascawwy wabbits).

  2. What a great idea for a book!

  3. I cannot read this without thinking “wascawy.” Absolutely cannot. Nice to see there’s more than YouTube videos of animals behaving badly (or “cutely” as the case may be). 😀

  4. I would love to get my hands on this book. Animals behaving badly must be so funny. What a great way to learn. (It is a Nat. Geo. Books, afterall). 😆
