4.0 out of 5 stars Animal Encyclopaedia 3 Nov 2013
By Josa
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought for a 4 year old who loves non-fiction books being read to him, this is a beautifully illustrated and well organised reference book. It contains sections about all the main animal groups, with loads of interesting facts about the animals and picture quizzes which prompt the young reader to explore further. Highly recommended, my only quibble is that I would have preferred to buy a hard-cover version. However the paperback is quite sturdy and the pages are made of extra tough paper so should stand up to heavy handling from young children.
