Amazing Animal Facts postcards

amazing-animal-facts-50-colorable-postcards-boxAs you probably know if you’re reading my blog, from time to time I write reviews of books that different publishers send me (BTW this seems as good a time as any to say that getting these for free doesn’t affect my reviews of them).  My last item was not a book though.  It is a set of postcards.  The Amazing Animal Facts postcards to be precise.  They come in a nice box with dividers, not unlike a recipe box, to separate out the different types of animals (Sea, Forrest, Field, Jungle, Sky).  There are two of every card which would allow you to send one and keep one if you wanted to keep a set.

There’s not a whole lot more to say about these cards other than I like them.  I don’t know that I have need to send out postcards, or that I ever will.  But I like the art on them enough to be glad I have them around.  It’s an interesting product, and I would love to see a similarly designed book with more animals represented.  I only wonder if, as a product, this one has any real staying power.
