 Discover the many ways animals are surprisingly human!

Meet more than 2,500 amazing animals in this comprehensive, family-fun, global reference guide from Animal Planet — your source for all things animals. Get up close and personal with the diverse species that share our world and discover the many ways animals are just like us!

Animal Planet Animals: A Visual Encyclopedia profiles the seven major animal classes — mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, arthropods, and other invertebrates — and features more than 1,000 stunning color photographs of animals in action. A giant removable poster showcases record-breaking animal kingdom facts and Animal Planet L!VE bonus videos transport readers from the book page directly to animals in their natural habitats around the world. Additional book features include a comprehensive glossary, index, and study resources for extended learning in geography, climate change, biology, and ecosystems, plus Animal Planet's R.O.A.R (Reach Out. Act. Respond.) facts throughout discuss conservation and animal rescue efforts.

Highly accessible for both curl-up reading and dip-in reference needs, care has been taken to offer animal lovers less work and more wow by weaving the taxonomic and biological information throughout the individual sections rather than putting it all up front. Specialist authors and life science experts provide the most up-to-date view of the animal kingdom, making it an ideal homework helper and a crucial family reference for the school years and beyond.

A beautiful gift for any animal lover, a portion of proceeds benefits R.O.A.R. (Reach Out. Act. Respond.), Animal Planet's project dedicated to improving the lives of animals in our communities and in the wild.

Montzalee Wittmann More than 1 year ago
Animal Planet Animals is a delightful visual and informational book packed with joy that only the Animal Planet could deliver. The images are so clear and entertaining, and there are so many of them! There are many small pieces of information on each of the animal such as size, habitat, food, and something special just about them. Also, how they and human are alike. The book covers such a variety of animals, sea life, insects, or more. Every page is filled with intriguing info and wonderful images. I have looked at this book a few times already and it keeps drawing me back. It is not a small book either. The love of animals they put into this book is obvious, the pictures are worth every penny. The information is written in a fun, natural way and not like a textbook. This book is a pure joy to behold. A great gift for that someone who has everything or who loves animals. Kids would love this book, younger ones would need someone to read to them or they could just enjoy the gorgeous pictures. I received this book from NetGalley for a honest review and it in no way effected my rating or review content.
