I don’t know about you, but I am a visual learner. That’s why I love the trend of infographics and specifically this new non-fiction book, Animal Infographics by Chris Oxlade. You can tell me a blue whale weighs 145 tons, but it’s more effective to see a picture of a blue whale next to a picture of 22 African elephants. Now that’s heavy! The book is colorful, full of a variety of facts, and includes a glossary of terms and other resources if you want to learn some more.
