Extreme Longevity by Karen Latchana Kenney - ADVISABLE

Extreme Longevity: Discovering Earth’s Oldest Organisms by Karen Latchana Kenney, 91 pages. Twenty-First Century Books (Lerner Publishing Group), 2019. $30

Content: G 



Kenney introduces readers to several species of animals and plants according to how long their lives are. Some of these species live as long as humans, and some will live 5 or 100 times longer than humans do. These amazing organisms open a whole new world, and we have a lot that we can learn.

I really enjoyed reading this book because it made learning fun through story telling. Kenney mixes facts with stories in such a way as to keep the interest of her readers, and she also defines words that younger readers might not be as familiar with. The best part is that Kenney uses the researchers and explorers in the book to inspire readers to look at the world with new eyes, to discover and be curious.
