Animals come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. But, when we think of all the colors that animals tend to come in, we often do not have the color pink come to the forefront of our minds. Rightfully so, the only pink animal I can come close to think of is a flamingo.
Thank goodness I don’t have to think beyond that because Jess Keating did me a favor. She created an entire nonfiction picture book dedicated to the pink animals of the world. In her book, Pink is for Blobfish, you will meet 17 pink animals, and none of them is the easily recognized pink flamingo!
Pink is for Blobfish is such a fun nonfiction book. My students have loved reading about the wild and wacky animals that are out there in the world. Most of the animals in this books are ones that my students have never even heard of. Between the bright pink color theme, and the wacky animals, my students scoured over the facts in the pages of this book.
