Another day, another discovery of someone trying to make a profit off the intellectual property of others. My review for most of these books, when I find them, and when I bother, is mostly the same. Why? Because with the exception of the titles, and WHICH pictures and sentences they skimmed from the internet, the books are all exactly the same.

I discovered this "book" when it was listed, along with fifty other books by the same author (although some of the books list a different author on the inside) as a free resource for homeschooling. I am both a homeschooling mom and a former elementary school teacher with a Master's degree in Literacy, so I'm always interested to see what's out there.

This book (and all the other ones in the "series") is nothing more than a collection of pictures skimmed from the internet. Typing "jellyfish" into Google images turns up most of the pictures in this book very quickly, coming from a large variety of websites. The vast majority of pictures in this book are probably being used illegally with no compensation for the owners of the images. (In any case, there are no statements in the book giving credit to the owners of the pictures used, or showing permissions for using them.)

Underneath each picture is a random fact about jellyfish. They are not organized in any fashion, and most of them are unrelated to any other information in the book. They are also NOT at a reading level appropriate for early readers, despite the "FOR KIDS! LEARN TO READ!" advertisement on the cover.

I suspect these are copied and pasted from somewhere, but I didn't search to find out where. Someone else on a review of one of the books found most of the sentences on Wikipedia.

I was rather disappointed by this book. While most of the 'facts' in it were more or less correct, they were not well organized. An animal book for children needs to be completely accurate in its facts because young children are likely to accept what they are told uncritically. The pictures are very nice, but the sources are not acknowledged and could have been taken from the internet without much regard to whether any copyrights have been breached.
A serious worry is the child with small jelly fish on a plate, coupled with the statement later in the book about people eating jellyfish. A child could easily misunderstand and try to eat a random jellyfish.
The danger from jellyfish stings was not emphasized enough. Some jellyfish can kill people and pouring vinegar on the stings will not be enough to save the person.
