Do you enjoy reading nonfiction books about animals? If so, have you read any of the above books? Also, share with me any nonfiction books about animals you've read and enjoyed reading in the comment section below. Maybe I'll find some new favorite nonfiction books about animals!


  1. I'm not a huge animal lover, so I don't read many non-fiction books where they even appear. So, no wonder, I haven't read any of your books. But I think this is a great topic.

    Thanks for visiting my flower post.

    1. I try to come up with new topics to write about every so often on my blog... Since I love nonfiction books and animals, it made sense that I have made posts on this topic as I've read quite a few books about animals!

    2. Definitely a good idea. I often end up with historic books.
