If you're unfamiliar with Bindi Irwin, I'm thinking you either live under a rock or are a youngin'. Bindi Irwin is the smart and adorable daughter of the late Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter who had a fatal and unfortunate encounter with a stingray.
Bindi has since attempted to fill her father's big shoes by letting the world experience the wonderful animal world. Bindi has made it clear that she shows her father's passion for everything animal.
In that regard, Bindi has began co-authoring a series of books featuring "the characters of Bindi, Robert (her brother), Terri (her mom), and the Australia Zoo (where they live!). The stories are based on Bindi’s real-life adventures, and include animal fact files at the end. Bindi likes to say that kids will “accidentally learn something” after reading her books! She also believes that kids will come away with a better understanding of wildlife and what they can do to help conserve and protect the world’s endangered animals."
My 5 year old is enjoying having these books read to her as she loves animals. They are chapter books geared towards ages 7-10, so as she gets older, she will be able to read them to herself.
