When I'm waiting for guests, I casually put a few interesting books in a prominent place beforehand. The ones that are fun to pick up and just flip through quickly.
For example, some albums or illustrated encyclopedias. Cookbooks are good too. They brighten up the guests waiting for snacks and drinks, while the hosts, as always at the beginning of the evening, fuss in the kitchen. They also save you from pauses and give ideas for discussions in the first minutes, while the conversations are still only accelerating.
And this book is just like that, entertaining for everyone, and delighting everyone: adults, children, adult guests, and children of guests! It depicts whole animals or only parts of their bodies in life size - shark teeth, an elephant foot, a crocodile head, a huge squid eye, a giant (incredibly giant!) frog, a tiny cute lemur... You apply different parts of the body to the pictures - and right amazed! In addition to pictures in the book about each animal, there are amusing rare facts. For example, imagine, an anteater can eat a huge amount of termites in one sitting, but he will never completely destroy the colony, he leaves a part so that it can recover.
The book is initially large and the pages are additionally unfolded - it becomes simply huge; illustrations made in paper collage technique look very original and naturalistic, it even seems that you can feel the texture of fur or leather.
