"Another day, another discovery of someone trying to make a profit off the intellectual property of others. My review for most of these books, when I find them, and when I bother, is mostly the same. Why? Because with the exception of the titles, and WHICH pictures and sentences they skimmed from the internet, the books are all exactly the same.

I discovered this "book" when it was listed, along with fifty other books by the same author (although some of the books list a different author on the inside) as a free resource for homeschooling. I am both a homeschooling mom and a former elementary school teacher with a Master's degree in Literacy, so I'm always interested to see what's out there.

This book (and all the other ones in the "series") is nothing more than a collection of pictures skimmed from the internet. Typing "grizzly bears" into Google images turns up most of the pictures in this book very quickly, coming from a large variety of websites. The vast majority of pictures in this book are probably being used illegally with no compensation for the owners of the images. (In any case, there are no statements in the book giving credit to the owners of the pictures used, or showing permissions for using them.)

Underneath each picture is a random fact about grizzly bears. The facts are not organized in any fashion, and most of them are unrelated to any other information in the book. I suspect these are copied and pasted from somewhere, but I didn't search to find out where. Someone else on a review of one of the books found most of the sentences on Wikipedia.

There is no table of contents or any other non-fiction feature you'd want in a children's research book. There is no listing of sources where the facts were obtained.

My guess is that these books were copied and pasted together quickly by someone hoping to make a quick dollar off of unsuspecting consumers. (While this book was free when I purchased it, there were MANY books built exactly the same way that had a price tag attached, and I'm sure this book will not always be free.)

"Amazon makes the purchase so easy and it is fast . I lovee my Kindle, thank you Amazon, you rock." said.

"I was fortunate to download several of the books in this series from Amazon for my Kindle. My grandchildren LOVE the books. They pack a lot of info into these; I'm thinking they're going to be fabulous for some quick find info when they are required to write a book report for school." said.

"No wow factor here but it wasn't anything I would buy. It was perfect to borrow and read a couple of times." said.

"My son loves reading about animals, and acting out the things he learns. A great, educational read to inspire young minds." said.
