Did You Know...? 20 April 2014
By tvtv3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
INFORMATION GRAPHICS: ANIMAL KINGDOM is an encyclopedia of animal knowledge written and designed for children, but like the best of children's literature, it makes a great resource for adults with an interest in the life sciences, too. The book is divided into eight color coded and tabbed topics: species, senses, record breakers, food and drink, family, habitats, killers, and man's best friend. Like the title of the series says, this is a book filled with colorful and informational charts, diagrams, and graphics that examine, compare, contrast, and educate about animals of our world: from insects to whales and everything in between. For instance, one of the many things I learned reading the book is that domestic cats in North America kill between 1-4 billion birds and between 6-20 billion other mammals a year! Besides being full of interesting animal tidbits, this book is made to last longer than a typical book: the cover and pages are made from a stiffer stock of paper than usual and the cover is made from a rubbery-type of paper. Overall, INFORMATION GRAPHICS: ANIMAL KINGDOM is a highly educational book about animals that's presented in a very visual format that children with an interest in animals will probably find quite interesting.

The graphics are super and the information is OK. 30 May 2014
By Bob Walch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is more about packaging although the content is OK. The use of bright, eye arresting color and fairly simple animal illustrations that have a cartoonish quality are combined with the content that will inform the reader about various quirky animal facts. Topics range from animal self-defense and habitats to animal senses.

An entertaining book with some fun facts the visual impact this volume has is its major selling point. It certainly is different and delivers information with a POP !

Book supplied by publisher.
Colorful and informative 19 April 2014
By Betty Gelean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Information Graphics - Understand the facts in the blink of an eye.
This colorful, entertaining yet educational book comes in tabbed sections for ease of finding the information you want. Such sections as Species, Senses, Record Breakers, and so on. An encyclopedia of information on a small scale, but with a lot of what children might want to know. It may come as a surprise just how much can be covered in this book. With Information Graphics, and Nicholas Blechman's splendid contribution to format and illustration, the information is right before your eyes in graphic form, for instance the Hippo visible on the cover clearly shows that it has the largest mouth and the Pelican can just as obviously show that his mouth (beak) can 'hold more than his belly can'. The pages will hold up to wear and tear, made of stiff stock.

Not only will children learn about vertebrates and invertebrates, cold-blooded and warm-blooded, but such things as what animal can hold its breath the longest, what animal has the largest brain (no, it's not a human), how does a Hammerhead Shark see, what animal has the biggest mouth and which one has the longest tongue. Other sections can tell you how much water a camel can drink in what amount of time. Kids will love this book for both the graphics and the odd things they will learn. Recommended for children 6-9, I think some a bit younger and some a bit older myself because of the interesting facts. A great way to see the world of animals in a memorable way.

A book that is of interest both to the parent and child. Full of fascinating facts, not that I can remember them all (!) however, I am sure I will by the 100th reading.
The images are clear, quirky and full of imagination and sense of humor. If you liked "NIghtlight" by Blechman you will also want to get this book for the next age group of 4+
