Cheetahs, Mimic Octopuses, Hoatzins & More! - a Fantastic Book!

I know for the past week I have been writing about the Life on the Goldilocks Planet books, but I want you to know about this unique series which makes a fantastic gift - especially when you combine a book with the supplies needed for all the science projects, crafts, recipes, and games which fill the books. This gift will bring joy to your family as you all learn, explore, experiment, create, and have fun together! If you have children ages four to fourteen you love who who enjoy science projects, craft projects, enjoy cooking activities, games, and learning about amazing animals, then, yes, this is the gift for them!

Over the past few days I have shared the Life on the Goldilocks Planet books with you - today I want to let you know about another book in the series - Cheetahs, Mimic Octopuses, Hoatzins & More! - in this book you will find the following animals - Cheetahs, Eels, Philippine Eagles, Chameleons, Gerenuks, Mimic Octopuses & Immortal Jellyfish, Hoatzins, Moose, Boxfish, Iberian Wolves, Olms & Mombachos, and Bactrian Camels - which of these have you never heard of before?

So, what projects will the children you love be able to enjoy with Cheetahs, Mimic Octopuses, Hoatzins & More!well, check out this list . . . 

  • Elephant toothpaste
  • Three racing games
  • DIY Colorful suncatchers
  • Make bird feeders
  • "Moving" colors
  • Leaves science project
  • Let's play charades
  • Learn about digestion
  • Make a hollow trivet

  • Zero-movement contest

Did you know - 
  • Cheetahs go from zero to 60 miles per hour in just three seconds!
  • Baby Eels look transparent until they grow large enough to move from the surface of the ocean to the deeper waters where they live  or for freshwater Eels to return to the freshwater. This process may take as long as two and a half years.
  • When a Mimic Octopus is being pursued by a hungry neighbor, they change color and shape to resemble as many as 15 other venomous or toxic creatures which eat their hungry neighbors  such as Crabs, Lion Fish, Sole, Batoids, Anemones, Jellyfish, Starfish, and Sea Snakes.
  • Immortal Jellyfish  revert to their polyp stage (this process is called transdifferentiation) and basically lets them age backwards  revert to being polyps and then clone themselves to make all new Immortal Jellyfish  which are identical to the original - meaning they dondie, they just keep starting over again and again.

  • Hoatzins (HWAT-sins) chicks are born with odd, special claws on their wings.
  • The hooves on Moose are large  and work like snowshoes  very helpful since they live where there is a lot of snow!
  • When Boxfish are ready to have babies, the dads show off their bright colors to the moms, then they dance, swim around, and actually hum loud enough if you are swimming nearby, you will hear them!
  • Olms have actually been observed to be still, not moving, for more than 2,500 days in a row! 
In Cheetahs, Mimic Octopuses, Hoatzins & More! the children you love will be able to learn so many fun, surprising, and interesting things about animals, participate in activities they will never forget, and you will have the opportunity to engage them in important conversations about how these incredible animals help them know God is real! What could be a better gift! 

When you combine Cheetahs, Mimic Octopuses, Hoatzins & More! and a box of supplies for all the fun, you will find you have a fantastic gift for the children you love. If you live close, you might arrange to get together for the activities and if you live far, connect on-line to engage with them as they enjoy the science projects, art projects, cooking activities, and games - be sure to keep a camera handy or ask their parents to please take photos for you. And be ready for important conversations which will help you hand down confident faith - what could possibly be a better gift?
