Okay, what if Animals used Social Media? Humans have had both success and failures with the various platforms. Critter Chat from National Geographic KIDS tells you what to expect when animals have their own social media accounts.

  • A Black Bear gives a wooden hand held back-scratcher (available on AMAZON) a one star review since a tree does a better job plus the bear can leave his scent on the tree.
  • The Dolphinstagram page will have a variety of animals posting pictures of themselves.
  • Animals like the Spotted Salamander (screen name: Soft Spot), Arctic Tern (screen name: TernAround), or even the Red Kangaroo (screen name: Rusty Roo) will start chatting with other animals in their very own Critter Chat Rooms.
  • And watch out when a Male House Mouse posts a profile on a dating app.

It’s all in good fun. The colorful guide is loaded with pictures and animal facts along the way. The slightly more that 6 inch by 6 inch size is perfect for traveling or tucking under the pillow to keep the next hilarious post close by. It’s the type of book that will get passed around as you share the imaginative results when social media invades the animal world.

Critter Chat is sure to please browsers both young and old. The smiles on my face prove that point!

  1. The cover puts a smile on my face. I think kids will enjoy this book. We always wonder what our pets think. I listen to the birds chirping outside my window in the early morning and wonder what they are communicating. Now it’s animals using social media — what fun! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Kids will probably like this. Silliness goes over well with the young ones. Thanks for telling me about this.
