I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
Woodpecker Will presents the Animalympics! Whilst the humans stay indoors, the animal kingdom takes over to hold the sporting event of the century! Join the golfing ostriches, trampolining moles and weight-lifting gorillas (plus many more) in a fun rhyming adventure for all ages.
This picture book is written for ages 6-11. Children should love having this rhyming book read to them. It might be a little bit long for a bedtime story, but it is very charming. The illustrations have great detail and the artist has created so many different animals, ready to compete. The idea for animals to compete in Olympic sports is wonderful. I truly enjoyed the description of each competition. The animals chosen for this book go beyond the typical dog and cat variety. The author included sloths, beavers, and narwhals. The cutest animals I saw were the elephants, but everyone will have a favorite. Animalympics would make a welcome gift for children.

Although Josie’s books are too young for her children now, it was their love of stories when they were little which inspired Josie to pick up her pen and create.
