Format: Hardcover
This is the ideal book for all those youngsters out there that love animals! It gives reference to animals from all over the world and there habitat and feeding requirements! It also gives info on there behaviour and ability to camoflage themseves. The great thing about this book is it's ability to find the animal your looking for easily with it's A to Z format. Give this book to any animal lover and they will be reading for hours! The info you can find out about the animal kingdom from this Encyclopedia is outstanding. But then it is published by Dorling Kindersley! My friends daughter has this book and has read nothing since! She is inspired especially by the excellent photography.With clear, colourful pictures of the animals, you can't help but read up about the animals! When you do, the information also lives up to your expectations. This is an ideal book to find out almost everything you need to know about animals from little birds to big elephants and a lot more! This book is also perfect for topics at school concerning animals. The Teachers will be impressed by there wealth of information on a particular species! So, over all a particularly excellent Encyclopedia that you just shouldn't be without!

Bought for my granddaughter aged 7 years. I feel it is rather large for small hands and wish the brightly coloured jacket was more durable. However the encyclopaedia itself is a source of joy and education. A very good introduction to reference books
and how to use them. My granddaughter turns to it whenever she has questions, without prompting. She is constantly showing off her knowledge.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book as a present for my granddaughter who is currently obsessed with animals. The book is perfect for her and seems to have been designed for young children. Each page contains lots of pictures of animals with a small description for each one so there's lots to see and not much reading - ideal for children in the 5 to 8 age groups.

This is an excellent book, my four year old little boy loves it, it answers all his questions about animals, sadly lacking from his other general encyclopedia.

This is the type of book I would have loved as a child and I was probably more into it then my children! I got this used but in very good condition with only slight tear to spine that probably happened in transit. The book is hardback unlike what someone else stated. It's the perfect addition to my growing little educational library that will be useful for many years to come.

I chose this for my niece who is always asking about animals and loves going to the zoo. The layout of the book is really user friendly and is very clear. The pages have lots of information yet it is really well presented and easy to follow. A star buy.
