Book Review | Bindi Wildlife Adventures

Title:Trouble at the Zoo: Bindi Wildlife Adventures and Rescue!: Bindi Wildlife Adventures

Author: Bindi Irwin and Jess Black

My Review:

Steven Irwin would be so proud of his beautiful and talented young daughter, Bindi, age 12 who continues his legacy and shares a love and passion for wildlife with children of all ages. My own children were very excited to have me read aloud the first two books in the Bindi Wildlife Adventures Book series.

Co-created by Bindi Irwin and written by Jess Black, the first two books in this series include, Trouble at the Zoo and Rescue which feature “the Jungle Girl”, Bindi and are inspired by Bindi and her family’s real life adventures. Can you imagine how exciting it would be to actually live at the Australia Zoo? My kids are completely in awe and really enjoyed both stories and it was the first book that we read without pictures (they are only 3, 4 and 6) and it still captured their imaginations and held their attention a few pages each day. In fact, my six year old son enjoyed it so much that he asked me to help him look up some of the wildlife animals in the book like the “Giant Sable Antelope” and he created a poster that he drew himself to put on his playroom wall. I like that each book has Animal Fact Files at the end of each book to teach you about the animals featured in the story.

I love how the books are both entertaining and educational, teaching about conservation and protecting the world’s endangered animal in a way that children can relate too and understand. The books are written with an intended audience ages 7-10 and are very reasonably priced at only $4.99. These would be an excellent idea for summer reading for early readers who are sure to have a blast on these two adventures.

*I received a copy of this book to review but I was not financially compensated in any way. The opinions expressed are my own and are based on my observations while reading this novel.*
