What a beautiful book this is! From the outside cover to the inside pages, this book is one that will be used over and over again. If you’re an animal lover or know of one, this book should be on your radar. With amazing pictures and a condensed, educational summary of over 100 species of animals, this book is sure to capture your attention. I love the way this book is presented beginning with its cover. The teal cover with the gold lettering, the design takes center-stage. The gold continues along the top, bottom and fore edges of the book. When closed, the book is teal or gold (pages included) with a silky green ribbon attached to be used as a bookmark. Such a beautiful book! From ocean life to land animals to birds, the book is springing with life. Each animal has a two-page spread with a realistic photo and facts about that animal. Some of these photos are big and very detailed. Bats, viper fish, raccoon, moles, geckos, and pheasants, are some of the animals. The animals presented are not exotic but I found the information presented is fun and informational. Fact: If we could drink like a camel, we would have to drink a glass of water every two seconds for 10 minutes. Fact: Kangaroos lick spit onto their arms to help them cool down. I really enjoyed this non-fiction book for kids. DK did it again and I have to commend them for another fantastic book for children. My six-year old granddaughter would love this book. She has decided that she is going to be a scientist when she grows up and I can see her carrying this book to bed with her at night and studying up on her animals.
