Lovely Beasts: The Surprising Truth
Written by Kate Gardner, Illustrated by Heidi Smith

Spiders are creepy. Porcupines are scary. Bats are ugly.

Or are they . . . ?

This captivating book invites you to look beyond your first impressions at these awe-inspiring animals in the wild. After all, it’s best not to judge a beast until you understand its full, lovely life.

I love that this story tells the good each of the creatures (that are seen as scary) do. It starts with a negative adjective with the animal, then a positive one we may not consider. A great way to teach about the animals.
