The Screaming Hairy Armadillo Children’s Book


Disclaimer; I received this book for free in exchange for my review and my honest opinion, I have not been compensated in any way.


With all of us being stuck at home because of the pandemic, we have to find ways to entertain our little ones. I think the best way is through books and learning games, well, I have the perfect fun book, “The Screaming Hairy Armadillo” Book it is filled with  lively, illustrated celebration is jam-packed with creatures notable for their bizarre, baffling, and just-plain-funny names.


Meet the White-Bellied Go-Away Bird, whose cry sounds like someone screaming, “Go away!” Or the Aye-Aye, whose name means “I don’t know” in Malagasy because no one wants anything to do with this bad-luck creature.


Some are obvious, if still weird––guess what the Fried Egg Jellyfish looks like. Others sound like an inside joke: It’s easy to figure out what was on the taxonomist’s mind when he christened a fly he discovered Pieza Pie.


Along the way you’ll learn all about these curiously named animals’ just-as-curious habits, appearances, and abilities.
